Sharing the promise of peace. Easy as 1,2,3.
As we make the shift from the International Year of Co-operatives
to the International Decade of Co-operatives - named so by the International Co-operative Alliance - we are reminded of the important roles co-operatives are playing to engender peace around the globe. International Disptach takes you to Sri Lanka where co-operatives are helping to level the playing field for those less ready to thrive now that the guns have been silenced. Take a three minute train trip across this tiny nation as it heals from a decades-long civil war.
