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

5 March 2013 [ English ] français ]

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”.

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: http://www.myworld2015.org/index.html

The United Nations has also launched the Survey on Cooperatives and Youth employment and entrepreneurship, which will identify youth cooperatives and cooperatives working for and with youth and what prospects and challenges they face. The responses to the survey will feed into a Global Mapping of Youth Cooperatives and Cooperatives working for and with Youth and an analytical report which will be made available online in April. The survey can be accessed through the following links (English, Spanish and French versions):
