In 2018, the International Day of Cooperatives is on the 7th of July.  With "sustainble consumption and production of goods and services" as the theme in mind, cooperators selected the 2018 International Day of Cooperatives (#CoopsDay) slogan: Sustainble societies through cooperation. Both reflect the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal number 12 which is ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’. Sustainable societies are ones that reflect the environmental, social and economic limits to growth.  


Cooperatives with their values, principles and governance structures have sustainability at their core and are different from other economic models in that they do not exploit the planet’s limits. The International Co-operative Alliance has created a Cooperators' guide to help you promote #coopsday around! We have prepared ‘ready to post’ messages for social media. The #coopsday logo is available for you in different languages and formats. The statement has been published for you to share its messaging and we are proposing cooperators divers actions to promote #coopsday. Just find the one that suits you and let us know if we can be of any help!
