In the words of Ban Ki-Moon

The first Co-operatives Fortnight comes to a close today on international co-operatives day and it is great to have received a tub-thumping message of support from United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.

He says “co-operatives are a reminder to the international community that it is possible to pursue both economic viability and social responsibility.  I urge the adoption of policies conducive to the creation and expansion of cooperatives – especially those that facilitate the participation of women.”

“By cooperating,” he continues “we can truly build a better world.”
