Mark your agendas with a big #CoopsDay sign for the 2019 International Day of Cooperatives to be held on 6 July 2019! The theme is COOPS 4 DECENT WORK. We are shouting out the message that cooperatives are people-centred enterprises characterized by democratic control that prioritise human development and social justice within the workplace.
It will be the 25th United Nations International Day of Cooperatives and the 96th International Cooperative day.
About the International Day of Cooperatives
The International Day of Cooperatives is an annual celebration of the cooperative movement which happens on the first Saturday of July since 1923 by the International Cooperative Alliance. Since 1995, together with the United Nations, we have been setting the theme for the celebration of #CoopsDay through the Committee for the Promotion and Advancement of Cooperatives (COPAC), a multi-stakeholder partnership of global public and private institutions that champions and supports people-centred and self-sustaining cooperative enterprises as leaders in sustainable development. The International Cooperative Alliance is a founding member.
