CU System
International Year of Co-ops launches around the world Thursday
MADISON, Wis. (1/11/12)--Cooperatives around the world will partner with other countries Thursday to launch the 2012 International Year of Cooperatives (IYC).

The Global News Hub for co-operatives (www.thenews.coop) will bring together live webcasts, with a stream of photographs and articles from the various country launches.

In Canada, a national launch (www.canada2012.coop) organized by the Canadian Cooperative Association and the Conseil canadien de la coopération et de la mutualité will take place in Ottawa, together with more than 12 other simultaneous regional events across the country.

All locations will be linked by a live webcast.

In the United Kingdom, Cooperatives UK will host a live broadcast with national newspaper the Guardian, which will be simulcast through the Global News Hub.

Cooperatives Europe will coordinate launches across continental Europe, which will include France, Italy and Portugal.

In the U.S., the IYC movement is sponsored by the nation's cooperatives, credit unions and the National Cooperative Business Association. They are urging cooperatives to tell their story on www.stories.coop.

Designated by the United Nations, IYC highlights the contributions cooperatives have made to help reduce poverty, create jobs and promote socio-economic development worldwide (News Now Jan. 4).
