World Consumer Rights Day (WCRD) is an annual occasion for celebration and solidarity within the international consumer movement.
First observed in 1983, WCRD has since become an important occasion for mobilising citizen action every year on 15 March.
This year's theme is ‘Our money, our rights’ and will highlight consumer issues in relation to financial services.
Access to stable, secure and fair financial services is important for consumers everywhere, not least in the context of the global financial crisis. Consumer organisations around the world support and promote consumer rights in the financial services sector with a variety of activities.
Consumers International (CI) is working with our members to build an international picture of these experiences, so watch this space for updates and interesting tidbits from accross the global consumer movement in the run up to 15 March 2010!
Consumers International marks 50 years of the global consumer movement in 2010. Celebrate with us as we continue to support, promote and protect consumer rights around the world. www.consumersinternational.org/50
