Slogan of this year is: “Co-operatives ensure no one is left behind”.

“The theme was selected by the Committee for the Promotion and Advancement of Co-operatives (COPAC), which the Alliance currently chairs.

Inclusion not only captures the people-focused nature of co-operative enterprises, but also echoes the co-operative principles of voluntary and open membership, democratic member control and member economic participation. Co-operatives provide a space where all people, regardless of race, gender, culture, social background or economic circumstance, can meet their needs and build better communities.

The theme of inclusion additionally complements the Alliance’s Global Conference theme: “Putting people at the centre of development”. The Global Conference will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 15-16 November 2017.” (http://ica.coop/en/media/news/inclusion-theme-of-the-2017-international-day-of-co-operatives) more

All cooperatives we wish to grow, prosper and satisfy!
