Your contribution matters: promote cooperatives participating in the UN “My World” global survey!

You can participate in the “My World” global survey launched by the United Nations to identify priorities in order to prepare the next development agenda in the run up to 2015! It is an online survey asking individuals to choose among sixteen possible issues, which they think would make the most difference to their lives. In addition to that, it is possible to suggest an additional priority, such as the goal “promoting cooperatives and other types of sustainable and participative enterprises”.

5 March 2013

The results will be submitted to the Secretary-General and will feed into the final report and recommendations for a new development framework in May 2013. It is thus recommended to participate preferably before the end of May, despite the fact that “My World” will continue to gather people’s votes after that date. The survey can be accessed through:
