International Day of Cooperatives

Annually observed on the first Saturday of July, the International Day of Cooperatives aims to increase awareness of cooperatives and advocate for the movement's principles of international solidarity, economic efficiency, equality, and global peace.

Although the United Nations officially marked the day in 2005, the celebration has been a tradition for the International Cooperative Alliance and the global cooperative movement since 1923.
