Every year since 1988, we celebrate this week as our contribution to building a sustainable and inclusive world. Feb 6-12 gives us an opportunity to celebrate Canadian contributions to eradicating poverty and building a more peaceful, inclusive, more prosperous world.
Despite the progress made, the impact of COVID-19 has pushed the progress in building inclusive, sustainable, and resilient communities. Cooperatives are a proven model for development built by their members to meet economic and social needs. Canada’s experience in addressing economic and social issues through coops brings an advantage to international development. CDF Canada has been working for 75 years in building sustainable coop communities across the globe.
We all have a role to play in building a better, sustainable, and resilient world.
So let’s #GoForTheGoals, #IDW2022.
Celebrate the International Development Week with CDF Canada!
