Celebrate Co-op Day, July 7

Published June 28, 2018

Next Saturday, July 7th is International Co-operative Day!

This is a great opportunity to celebrate the co-operative spirit and learn more about the global co-op movement.

Here are some ways your co-op might mark the day:

  • Organize a potluck, BBQ or other kind of social event at your co-op
  • Screen a documentary like A New Economy or any of the films listed here
  • Plan kid-friendly co-operative games and activities
  • Invite people from other co-ops, both housing co-ops and other kinds
  • Sign the Co-ops for 2030 pledge in support of the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, and share it on social media with CHF Canada and the hashtag #coops4dev

International Co-operative Day has been observed annually on the first Saturday in July since 1923 by the International Co-operative Alliance. Tap into the history and pride of the co-operative movement and join in the celebration!
