The International Co-operative Alliance has today issued its message for the 90th UN International Co-operative Day and the 18th UN International Day of Co-operatives which will be celebrated on Saturday 7th July.
The theme for this year’s International Day is ‘Co-operative enterprises build a better world’, supporting the theme for our International Year.
The International Year of Co-operatives is the time to tell the co-operative story to a wider audience. It is not only a story of past success, of individuals coming together during difficult economic times to leverage their resources, access markets, and restore balance to price negotiations. The resiliency and stability of the co-operative enterprise model is also a message for today.
