Int'l Summit of Cooperatives


Cooperatives: Enterprises Building a Better World - A Major IYC Event

By declaring 2012 the International Year of Cooperatives, the UN wants to recognize the economic and social contribution of the cooperative model.

This Summit's theme, "The Amazing Power of Cooperatives", is meant to evoke the idea that the cooperative movement represents a long-term solution that can help establish a more solid, democratic and equitable economic system.

We hope that the 2012 International Summit of Cooperatives will encourage governments and international institutions to support the development and growth of small, medium and large cooperatives and mutuals worldwide so that we can all believe in a better world. 

... Dame Pauline Green, President of ICA
