Youth network Kigali banner

We invite you to participate in the Assembly and Workshop of the Youth Network which will be held on 13 October 2019 in Kigali, Rwanda just before ICA’s Cooperatives for Development Global Conference (14-17 October).


There will be a short Assembly prior to the workshop primarily to elect the new members at large. More details about the Youth Network Assembly and the proxy procedure will be sent to voters closer to the meeting. It should be noted that only voting members of the Youth Network will be able to vote but other registered youth are invited to observe the Assembly.


Following the Assembly, the Youth Network will hold a workshop to discuss:

  • Analysis from the mapping project and case studies / best practices.
  • Projects to replicate best practices.
  • How can we bring youth into the ICA?
  • Youth resolution to the ICA General Assembly to take place 17 October 2019 in Kigali.

All youth are invited to and encouraged to participate fully in this workshop. We need your ideas, inspiration, and collaboration!

Call for Nominations

Learn more about the global co-operative movement, make a difference globally, and learn valuable collaborative leadership and skills! The Executive Committee has four seats for members at large who are nominated by ICA members, but no more than one member at large from each region.  These seats are up for election. You can find out more and download the nomination form below. Please note that nominations can only come from member organisations of the International Cooperative Alliance.

For our planning purposes, we would appreciate it if you could please inform Gretchen Hacquard at if you intend to participate. We hope to see you there!
