The International Summit of Cooperatives, to be hosted in Quebec later this year, is looking for 230 young co-operators from around the globe.

All organizations that are part of the broader global cooperative movement, from top-tier cooperatives to sector-based cooperatives and the organizations that represent them, are being invited to refer participants to the Summit's Future Cooperative Leaders Program before entries close on Monday, April 30th.

Each organization is invited to refer up to two candidates to the Quebec City conference (October 8th-11th), who must be aged between 25–30 at the time of the Summit and are employees or elected directors of a cooperative. To refer a candidate, the organization should send a short biography (300 to 400 words) describing the candidate's experience and strengths.

Young co-operators will have the opportunity to exchange with their peers and meet and hear from the most prominent and respected cooperative CEOs and experts.

The Summit will bring together cooperators from around the globe. Participation in the Future Cooperative Leaders program will be an opportunity for the cooperative world's most promising new talent to meet and hear from the most prominent and respected cooperative CEOs and experts.
