Are you 16 - 35? Are you passionate about co-operatives? Do you have an artistic flare?

The ICA launched a global artistic competition designed to encourage young people to creatively express their views on co-operative principles.

A camera, an instrument or a voice is all you will need to be able to participate in the Coop’Art competition.

The ICA invited young people into the co-operative sector because co-operatives have so much to offer young people. They provide young people opportunities that address their practical and strategic needs. The model offers youth a model of enterprise to create their own businesses. They also offer employment opportunities with enterprises that address concerns for more democratic, responsible and ethical business operations.

Entry is now closed.

“Young people throughout the world share many of the values of the co-operative movement, and they live by these on a daily basis.  If co-operatives are able to deliver their messages in a way young people understand using the communication tools that they use, it will be possible to get them more active and involved, laying the foundations for a more co-operatively engaged society and may be even identi probably set the basis to find the future co-operative leaders. Coop’Art is an excellent tool to do this.”
