On 6 July 2024, cooperatives around the world will celebrate the International Day of Cooperatives (CoopsDay, IDC) with the theme "Cooperatives Build a Better Future for All." Cooperatives will have the opportunity to showcase their current and historical contributions to building a sustainable future, accelerating efforts to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by 2030. The theme aligns well with the objectives of the upcoming UN Summit of the Future whose theme is “Multilateral solutions for a better tomorrow”.


 You can participate in the celebrations using the media pack that includes the logo, key messages, and other digital resources, and share your stories of CoopsDay celebrations to be featured on the interactive map. All information is available here.


The Asia and Pacific region is home to a diverse and vibrant cooperative movement that has been instrumental in driving socio-economic development, promoting environmental sustainability, and fostering community resilience. On this CoopsDay, the ICA-AP Regional Office, in its  position paper, highlight the lessons learned and explores how cooperatives can keep making a positive impact and help build a better future for everyone.

Together, we are building a better future for all. Happy International Day of Cooperatives!
