Celebrating the theme Cooperatives Build a Better World

On July 2, we celebrate the International Cooperatives Day and this year we are celebrating the theme Cooperatives Build a Better World. The aim is to spread the word about how our human-centred business model, inspired by the cooperative values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity and the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others, is building a better world. 

This year we will bring to you short video blogs featuring cooperatives working in emerging markets and they will talk on how their work in the sector is helping to build a better world. Watch the videos below.
