Cooperatives have exhibited its inevitability at different points of time and contributed to the success of India’s development planning with respect to achieving poverty alleviation, food & nutritional security, social integration, and employment generation. A clarion call for achieving prosperity through cooperation, alignment with the advances in technology and prioritizing equitable growth required building capacity of the members of board of directors, members of the cooperatives and professionals to adapt to the changes is a continuous endeavor of VAMNICOM. Through effective partnerships, a memorandum of understanding the Institute has reached out to different States and Institutes and other countries.
Through our education programme, we are enabling youth to understand the cooperative business model and make cooperation a suitable employment pathway. We are working towards the incubation centre for knowledge innovations and skill sets to bring a change through cooperation and collectives.
India will be hosting G20 Summit in 2023 with a theme - “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” or “One Earth · One Family · One theme Future”. Essentially, the theme affirms the value of all life – human, animal, plant, and microorganisms – and their interconnectedness on the planet Earth and in the wider universe. The distinct identity of cooperatives relying on cooperation and unison of purpose for better world together will be required to contribute to advancing the 2030 agenda of green development and achieving sustainable development goals.
