The current generation of young people is faced with a double challenge: socially motivated youth are met with mass unemployment, precarious jobs and lack of inclusion on the job market. Cooperatives are convinced that they are the innovative answer rising up to the challenge, offering sustainable, participatory and socially responsible way of doing business for younger generations.

On November 7th, Cooperatives Europe, together with MEP Nicola Danti, the European Parliament Rapporteur on the collaborative economy, hosted an event titled “A cooperative vision for the collaborative economy” at the European Parliament.

The collaborative economy, empowered by peer-to-peer exchanges and digital technologies, presents a new opportunity for cooperatives to innovate the practice by shaping an inclusive, community-led and people-centred approach, while tackling the threats and negative effects.

Cooperatives Europe and CG Scop (Confederation of worker cooperatives in France) have released a new website in the framework of the European project TransfertoCOOPS.

With over 450,000 SMEs transferred each year in the EU, transfers into worker-owned cooperatives remain an untapped source of economic dynamism which could ensure secure jobs, sustainable expertise and participation in collective and democratic projects.
