Capture d’écran 2015-04-29 à 10

To shape a society that can enhance the role of younger generations, their political and civic participation is of utmost importance. But youth participation in business is important too, and there might be an unexploited potential in there. With this workshop, we would like to raise awareness about business models based on people participation, in particular cooperatives. Three entrepreneurs will share their cooperative experience and discuss with the audience what participation means to them.


Dann Creupelandt, Ecopower

Julia Schorestene, Coopaname

Enrico de Sanso, BeesCoop

The workshop will take place on May 6 (from 14:00 till 15:30) during the YO Fest! 2015 organised by the European Youth Forum in Brussels.
