2020 INTERNATIONAL COOPERATIVE DAY, 4th of July
LET'S COOPERATE AND INVITE EVERYONE TO FIGHT FOR CLIMATE CHANGE!
ACCU and its members celebrated the 2020 International Cooperative Day on the theme Cooperatives for Climate Action by organizing a 3 day online Trainers' Training on the Credit Union Business Solution NO. 26 - Guide for Credit Unions on Climate Action on July 1-3.
ACCU believes credit unions can significantly contribute to Sustainable Goal No. 13 – Climate Action. Climate change presents significant educational challenges on its causes and consequences. Credit unions in Asia represent more than 39 million people. Educating the members to build more realistic perception of climate risks and their vulnerabilities is essential.
The solution is a compilation of programs or projects credit unions can undertake to counter the impact of climate change. Everyone in this world needs to take part in saving the earth we all live in. Credit unions must consider their contributions because climate change will impact our future heavily and because every citizen and institution play a role in the complex challenge brought by changing climate.
The training was attended by 33 participants from Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Japan, Nepal, Philippines, Taiwan, and Thailand.
