TOT on Credit Union Contribution to SDG-13 Climate Action is now open for registration!

  • 6.00 pm - 8.30 pm

 Dear CEOs and Cooperators:

Greetings from ACCU! 
The Association of Asian Confederation of Credit Unions (ACCU) is pleased to announce that our first online training of trainers course on Credit Union Contribution to SDG-13: Climate Action is now open for registration!

The 2020 International Cooperatives Day theme was chosen to support Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 on Climate Action. This event will focus on the contribution of cooperatives to combating climate change, one of the most severe challenges facing our planet during the 21st century. Climate change severely impacts people’s livelihoods around the world, especially the most disadvantaged groups such as small-scale farmers, women, youth, indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities, who have to cope with extreme natural disasters and degradation of natural resources.
The cooperative movement can use this important opportunity to take a stand as a global actor of change and collaborate with its partners within the international community. This collective effort can significantly impact the climate agenda and achieve a fair, green and just transition for all communities, leaving no one behind.

ToT on Credit Union Contribution to SDG-13: Climate Action is a 3 days training course via Google Meet and it is a non-fee course. To be entitled for the course certification, participants must allocate three hour a day to attend the training as per schedule and complete the course assignment.  

After completing the course, participants will be able to:
  • Recognize the significant contribution credit unions can make in achieving SDG 13 - Climate Action
  • Develop broad understanding on the impact of climate change to members, credit unions and communities
  • Identify policy changes to ensure credit unions are not contributing to the degradation of climate
  • Adopt tools that can be used to integrate climate action in CU operations
  • Prepare action plan to introduce the program on Climate Action for the CU

Who should attend?

  • Five years experience related on CU credit union promotion or regulation.
  • Fluent in written and spoken English.
  • Will continue to work for the organization within the next five years
