Euro Coop Launches 'Cooperatives as Partners for Accelerated Sustainable Development' Campaign on World Cooperative Day

Brussels, June 29 2023 — In the face of diverse global crises and growing demands for sustainable development, Euro Coop together with Cooperatives Europe, EACB, Copa Cogeca, Housing Europe, CECOP and ResCoop today announced its campaign titled "Cooperatives as Partners for Accelerated Sustainable Development". The campaign aims to increase awareness about the integral role cooperatives play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and driving the European Union's transition pathways. 

Drawing upon the resilient nature of cooperatives and their enduring impact across various sectors, the campaign seeks to emphasise their pivotal role to economic, social, and environmental sustainability across various sectors and regions. By amplifying the values of mutual aid, democracy, collaboration, and equality this initiative intends to demonstrate how cooperatives represent innovative solutions for sustainable development and a better world. 

Secretary-General Todor Ivanov had this to share "United in diversity, our movement demonstrates that the cooperative way of working, inspired by our values and principles, is a force for a brighter, more prosperous and sustainable future. By creating opportunities for fairness, solidarity and equality, cooperatives represent a key partner of governments, civil society and the private sector. This gives us the strength to continue our contribution to the realization of the UN SDGs.

The campaign is based on a series of short videos highlighting cooperatives' contributions towards accelerated sustainable development in communities around Europe. These videos will be made available on the Cooperatives Europe Youtube channel on July 1. They encompass a broad spectrum of cooperatives, from agriculture and housing to platforms, industrial, energy, retail, and finance sectors, demonstrating their positive impact and sustainability-driven practices.
