Transformative Cooperatives for People, Planet, Prosperity & Peace
The Philippines, despite its positive prospects in economic development, is seriously confronted with the continuing problems of poverty and income inequality. Income inequality comes in two dimensions - the inequality among classes (or the poor becoming poorer and the rich becoming richer) and inequality among regions (or the poor regions are being left behind by the fast paced development of the richer urbanized regions). Cooperatives and other labor enterprises are among the major pillars of the people empowerment movement. (Sibal, 1991) This empowerment movement, which is now known as the civil society movement, aspires for a strong pro-people mixed economic society where the state, private and civil society sectors are cooperatively harnessed in the development efforts of the society
Today, the cooperative movement in the country with some 7 million members, are one with the new President in advancing a collectivist counter culture as its response to countervail against the dominant paradigm of poverty, powerlessness, violence and corruption. The country's number one resource is its people. Enhancing therefore their capabilities, developing their potentials and harnessing their skills must take precedence over other priorities knowing that countries that have not developed their human capital are now penalized by slow growth.
Topics discussed in relation to the nurture and protection of our environment and are as follows: 1) Investors Forum on Community Based Forest Management; 2) Environment Protection, Waste Management, and Climate Change; 3) Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture; and 4) Power Forum; Seminar on Sustainable Agriculture and Ecology;, Recognition of Outstanding Cooperatives; Environmental Awareness Activities including rehabilitation of mangroves, reforestation of denuded areas, and upland tree growing
The spirit of cooperativism shines through amidst the darkness of poverty and social inequities. Where people are poor because they are powerless to craft their destiny, where hunger looms because of social injustice as the mode of production and basic utilities are controlled by a few, where people are in dire economic difficulties because of lack of opportunities, skills and capabilities, it is during this time when cooperatives thrive best.
