The International Organisation of Industrial and Service Cooperatives (CICOPA) has launched on online survey on youth co-operative entrepreneurs.
The study – part of CICOPA’s campaign WE OWN IT! The future of work is ours – will feed into a global study on trends among young people in establishing and being part of worker, social or producers’/freelancers’ co-ops – as well as new, emerging forms.
CICOPA, a branch of the International Cooperative Alliance that promotes worker co-ops, has a membership of 43 national and regional co-op federations in 28 countries.
The purpose of the study is to inform and raise awareness about the state of youth co-operative entrepreneurship around the world.
Cicopa is looking for responses from youth co-ops (worker, social or producer/freelancer), and where the majority of members and non-member employees are aged 18-35.
