To honour its commitment as an eco-responsible event, the International Summit of Cooperatives is giving you an opportunity to minimize your environmental footprint by using a carpool service to travel to the Quebec City Convention Centre.
The Carpooling Network is a privately-owned, socially-oriented company based in Montreal, Quebec. It provides Summit participants with a friendly and efficient service to make their trips easier, from October 6 to 12, 2012, under an agreement with Desjardins Group as a financial partner.
