2012 is UN International Year of Cooperatives


The United Nation declared 2012 as the UN International Year of Cooperatives. This declaration is in recognition of the vital role and contribution of cooperatives to socio-economic development. This is an opportunity for Fair Trade Organizations that are operating in a cooperative set up to showcase best practices under the Fair Trade approach. The Global Launching will be on 31 October 2012.  Before the launching, there are opportunities to get involved for WFTO members. See social.un.org/coopsyear for more details.
