This conference will highlight how co-operative enterprises are a perfect fit with Europe 2020, the growth strategy of the EU for the coming decade.
EU 2020 aims for a “sustainable economy, putting people and responsibility first with a sustained fight against exclusion and a transition to a green economy”. Co-operatives already act in this way, putting people at the heart of their business, while at the same time generating long term wealth for the communities. co-operatives bring specific answers and innovative solutions that aim at contributing to the EU2020 strategy.
The European Conference will be the time for co-operatives to highlight their contribution to the EU 2020 strategy and to show that they offer a powerful stabilizing element to Europe’s economic system – a role that the European Institutions ought to recognize and strengthen further.
