International Day of Cooperatives, 10 July 2014

Cooperative enterprises put social justice and equity at the heart of economic progress.  As member-owned, member-run and member-serving businesses, cooperatives empower people to collectively realize their economic aspirations, while strengthening their social and human capital and developing their communities.

To celebrate the International Day of Cooperatives this year, UNDESA-DSPD in partnership with the Committee for the Promotion and Advancement of Cooperatives (COPAC) will organize a panel discussion on "Cooperative enterprises achieve sustainable development for all" on 10 July 2014 from 10am to 1pm in conference room 3 (CB) at UN Headquarters, New York.

The 2014 commemoration of the International Day of Cooperatives will highlight the principles, values and operational realities of cooperatives that make them unique instruments for achieving sustainable development and showcase the importance of the business model to realizing people-centred, inclusive development, post-2015.
