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.
