The International Co-operative Alliance Global Conference and General Assembly

Nov 10, 2015 to Nov 13, 2015

Antalya, Turkey

The ICA has announced the speakers for the Global Conference

Attending the Alliance's 2015 Global Conference will benefit your co-operative directly

  • Take the time to go into the economic and political trends and issues that will dominate the coming five years. Take home answers and strategies to sustainably develop your co-operative;
  • Meet with co-operative decision-makers, think tanks, region and sector specialists. Share and compare experiences with an international audience of co-operators;
  • Access strategies and tactics from experts for using the Blueprint for a Co-operative Decade, and differentiate your organisation via its co-operative identity.

The International Co-operative Alliance's 2015 Global Conference will focus on key trends in politics, economic governance, trade and technology. The Conference will provide insights in the drivers behind those trends, and make the connection with the strategies of the Blueprint for a Co-operative Decade.

The 2015 Conference will allow co-operatives and their apexes to develop effective business and policy strategies. Distinguished speakers from different backgrounds, inside and outside the co-operative movement, will engage in panel discussions. They will debate the role of co-operatives in addressing the major global challenges towards 2020.

Four plenary sessions will be held. They will discuss crosscutting issues, including Co-operative Identity, and four breakout sessions, each relating to one the pillars of the Blueprint: Sustainability, Participation, Legal Frameworks and Capital. The Alliance's 2015 Global Conference will be an opportunity to take stock of the achievements so far, and of the important challenges ahead in delivering the goals set out in the Blueprint for a Co-operative Decade.
