Theme announced for the International Day of Co-operatives
On 2 July, co-operatives from across the world will be celebrating the International Day of Co-operatives. This year the day will seek to showcase the contribution of co-operatives to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
The theme – “Cooperatives: The power to act for a sustainable future”, fits into the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted in September 2015. The 2016 theme also aligns with the slogan for the International Summit of Cooperatives – ‘Co-operatives: The power to act’, which will be held in Quebec on 11-13 October 2016.
