Be a Part of the International Year of Cooperatives

Celebrate the International Year of Cooperatives

The International Year of Cooperatives gives all of us the chance to raise the profile of cooperatives by telling stories about the difference cooperatives make in our lives.  Tell your stories to friends, family, legislators and other members of the public.

The Year also gives us an opportunity to celebrate the contributions that cooperatives make to their communities.

In this section of the site, you’ll find information and resources that can help you:

  • Tell the Story—to friends, the media, your elected officials
  • Take Action—by using the advocacy tools in this section
  • Celebrate in Your Community—with ideas and resources in this section
  • Sponsor—to show your support for the US celebration

You’ll also find a Calendar of Events and a full listing of all of the Resources that can support your observance of the International Year of Cooperatives.
