Young & Free Spokespeople from all over North America collaborate on a fun video to celebrate the International Year of Cooperatives.
From the official 2012.coop website:
"2012 has been recognised as the International Year of Cooperatives by the United Nations. This is an acknowledgement by the international community that cooperatives drive the economy, respond to social change, are resilient to the global economic crisis and are serious, successful businesses creating jobs in all sectors."
As the World Council of Credit Unions put it:
"As cooperatively owned and democratically controlled financial institutions, credit unions worldwide have an unprecedented opportunity to increase public awareness about the movement's contributions to socio-economic development, promote membership growth and encourage the adoption of policies and legislation that promote long-term growth and stability."
Is your credit union doing anything to take advantage in all of the IYC 2012 activity?
