Young People and the Future of Cooperation in Europe

Young People and the Future of Cooperation in Europe

On 21 and 22 November Cooperatives Europe is organising the “Young people and the future of cooperatives in Europe” conference in Cardiff. European delegates will gather for a conference exploring the role of young people in the cooperative movement toward the future. At the same time, the conference will be an opportunity to discuss with members from across the region the strategy of the European cooperative movement to tackle pressing challenges that will impact the future of the movement. 

 

Youth participants will be at the center, give new impulse to the Young European Cooperators Network, and co-decide the path forward. The event will present a unique opportunity to build ever-lasting Europe-wide relations with peers.

 

 

Why youth involvement?

Cooperatives Europe has supported the European Young Cooperators Network since 2015 and helped the organization of numerous youth events over the past years. 

With this event, Cooperatives Europe wants to support the entrepreneurial aspirations of young people, advance democratic cooperative practices that centre the interests of young people, and strengthen intergenerational collaboration. 

This is the reason why the event is an important occasion to engage young cooperators to become frontrunners of the movement. They will be able to connect and work with their peers from across Europe. At the same time, they will have a chance to follow inspirational presentations of cooperative leaders and go into dialogue during the panel sessions and meetings. In the evenings they will be able to enjoy networking with peers at dinner and drinks.

The aim of this conference is to think how our movement can be revitalised in a very practical way. Attendees will co-decide, collaborate, and think about new approaches to kickstart the network and equip it for a challenging decade.
