Session Description
This panel session is an opportunity to explore the scope of the role – often unnoticed -- that cooperatives across all sectors play in the world. As the world grapples with a climate emergency and scores of related challenges, co-ops and other community-owned businesses, offer a potential pathway to lead an equitable & regenerative transition away from our current extractive economy and unlock humanity’s best version of itself. The panelists will share stories of the successes and challenges of the cooperatives movement and discuss ways that investment in a new era of flourishing cooperatives can drive more global inclusivity and equity, better serve people and communities, contribute solutions to the world’s most pressing problems, and advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals
