The ICA International Cooperative Entrepreneurship Think Tank (ICETT) organised three events in June to deepen conversations about the cooperative identity in the run-up to the World Cooperative Congress in Seoul, the Republic of Korea.
The first event focused on the cooperative responses to the changes affecting the world of work, from automation to COVID-19.
The second event looked at what cooperatives can do to secure an environmentally just future, highlighting the thematic findings of the recently published World Cooperative Monitor, and the practices and policies put in place by large cooperatives to protect the environment. It was organised in collaboration with the European Research Institute on Cooperative and Social Enterprises (Euricse)
Organised in collaboration with the International Labour Organisation, the third event marked the International Day on Elimination of Child Labour. Participants shared case studies, best practices, and practical recommendations on how cooperatives enhance and accelerate the elimination of child labour.
The events are now available online here.
