Cooperacy is a project based on the study of Cooperation Science. Its aim is to share awareness of different decision making possibilities that on a wider scale may trigger a more evoluted social system.
A social system is simply the way people relate one another in a group or a society. More specifically, in a social system the decision making, the resources and the enjoyment of the group are seen as a unique whole.
The Cooperacy social system is based on redistributive funding, a special crowdfunding based on subscription. The subscription fee to participate in Cooperacy is very small: one euro per month. Every month the collective fund grows, allowing people to vote for how to use the common money and learn to interact in a different economic and social system based on cooperation.
A DESIGN DEMOCRACY
Anybody can join the Cooperacy social system. The aim is the mutual happiness of its participants.
The means to achieve this aim are complex as they are based on scientific research, but substantially Cooperacy is based on the coordination of the participants' diversity.
In order to reach a coordinated diversity, the Cooperacy project is based on a design democracy, in which the participants elect ideas instead of people. The ideas receive proportional importance, experimental space, funds and commitment of the group according to the votes they get. In this proccess there is not a single winning idea, all of them receive a proportional amount of attention.

THE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
During the beginning of 2014, two Italian old friends, Ilario and Alessandro, sat at the Peace Bar in Rome to discuss how a social system could change the contemporary dramatic situation of the world, still affected by economic inequivalence, hunger, wars and damaged ecosystem.
Alessandro told Ilario he was developing a model based on cooperation that could help the change.
In late 2014, a group of 7 independent researchers investigated from different disciplines and perspectives the model of Cooperation Science developed by Alessandro Merletti De Palo based on an extensive literature review about Cooperation and its many different frameworks. The model was confirmed by the investigations results, and the subsequent paper was accepted at the M.I.T. 2015 Collective Intelligence Conference in Santa Clara, organized by the University of Michigan - Ann Arbour, with the presence of Facebook and of the Google vice-president Regina Duncan.
"Cooperacy" then became a legal entity with the official registration in Milan by the co-founder Ilario Tito in 2015.
Focused on Cooperation Science, the association represents the legal entity of the whole social project. Many other people are joining Cooperacy to be part of it, not only for scientific reasons, but to develop together a new, cooperative social system.
