Cooperatives for a sustainable development

In the context of the UN High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), the Committee for the Promotion and Advancement of Cooperatives (COPAC) celebrated the International Day of Cooperatives with a Voluntary National Review Lab (VNR-Lab) on 11 July 2023 at the UN headquarters in New York. The event allowed countries that include cooperatives in their voluntary national presentations to exchange experiences with participants, including cooperators, for mutual learning and to have a deeper discussion on supporting cooperatives as sustainable and successful enterprises that are vehicles for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
