United Nations proclaimed 2012 as the International Year of Co-operatives (IYC)In December 2009, the United Nations proclaimed 2012 as the International Year of Co-operatives (IYC). The IYC aims at raising awareness on the socio-economic impact of co-operatives for promoting the autonomous formation and growth of co-operatives.

 

Specifically, the aims of IYC are to:

 

 

  • Increase public awareness about co-operatives, how they benefit their members and contribute to socio-economic development and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
  • Promote awareness of the global network of co-operatives and their efforts in community building, democracy and peace.
  • Promote the formation and growth of co-operatives among individuals and institutions to address common economic needs and for socio-economic empowerment.
  • Encourage Governments and regulatory bodies to establish policies, laws and regulation conducive to co-operative formation and growth.

The Year will be planned by the United Nations (UN) in close collaboration with the members of the Committee for the Promotion and Advancement of Co-operatives (COPAC).
