Baruch College Students Selected to Participate in United Nations Closing Ceremony

ACHEAngela Costanzo and Helen Englehardt, students from Baruch College’s Social Entrepreneurship Program, have been selected to participate in the closing ceremony of the United Nation’s International Year of Cooperatives (IYC) initiative on November 19 and 20.

The United Nations General Assembly declared 2012 as the International Year of Cooperatives, highlighting the contribution of cooperatives to socio-economic development, particularly their impact on poverty reduction, employment generation and social integration.

With the theme of “Cooperative Enterprises Build a Better World,” The International Year of Cooperatives focused on three main objectives: Increase public awareness about cooperatives and their contributions to socio-economic development; promote the formation and growth of cooperatives among individuals and institutions to address common economic needs and for socio-economic empowerment; and encourage governments and regulatory bodies to establish policies, laws and regulation conducive to co-operative formation and growth.

Costanzo and Englehardt will be participating in the two-day program which includes a panel discussion on Global Food and Security and the Role of Cooperatives and a forum on Cooperatives and Youth. Both will participate on the youth forum and contribute to the development of an International Youth Cooperative Statement that outlines opportunities and challenges of cooperatives for youth employment and empowerment.
