The International Summit of Cooperatives is a biennial gathering where leaders of cooperative and mutualist enterprises get together to discuss their concerns about the current and future business challenges they all share.
The 2014 International Summit of Cooperatives will welcome over 150 international experts to share with participants their vision, knowledge, and perspective on challenges and future prospects facing cooperative and mutual enterprises.
Some of the cooperative movement’s biggest names from the United States, Europe, Asia,
Australia, Latin America, and Canada have already confirmed their participation in the second edition of the Summit. They will give presentations, take part in round tables, and unveil the results of groundbreaking, world-class studies conducted specifically for the Summit.
Experts will lead an in-depth exploration of this year’s five themes:
- Developing cooperative and mutual enterprises
- Economics, financing, and capitalization
- Food security
- Health and social care services
This commitment by so many experts to attend the Summit, to be held in Quebec City October 6–9, 2014, is proof positive that the Summit is a must-attend event, both for cooperative and mutual leaders and their counterparts from the political and socioeconomic spheres.
