The Cooperative Movement Takes Action Against Climate Change

03 Jul 2020

The International Cooperative Alliance (ICA) invites the global community to celebrate the International Day of Cooperatives tomorrow, 4 July, by taking action against climate change. The 2020 International Day of Cooperatives theme – Cooperatives for Climate Action was chosen to support Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 on Climate Action. This event will focus on the contribution of cooperatives to combating climate change, one of the most severe challenges facing our planet during the 21st century. Climate change severely impacts people’s livelihoods around the world, especially the most disadvantaged groups such as small-scale farmers, women, youth, indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities, who have to cope with extreme natural disasters and degradation of natural resources.
