Cooperative Enterprises Build a Better World
Co-op Month 2012 continues the celebration of the International Year of Cooperatives!
The slogan for Co-op Month 2012 is the same as that for the International Year: “Cooperative enterprises build a better world.” This slogan conveys the contributions that cooperatives make to social and economic development.
Please plan to use the logo created by the United Nations in your materials. The UN requires that any organization planning to use the logo receive approval. If you have not been approved, please visit this site.
Celebrate Co-op Month during all of October—but especially during Co-op Week, Oct. 14-20, 2012.
