Juventud y Cooperativismo en América

#coops4dev

"El presente material representa un esfuerzo de Cooperativas de las Américas por conocer, sistematizar y mejorar las acciones orientadas a la integración juvenil de nuestras cooperativas. Los ocho estudios de caso son una muestra de nuestra rica diversidad, así como el enorme potencial que representa la posibilidad de canalizar el espíritu de jóvenes de las Américas a través de nuestro sector cooperativo.

Comprender qué demandan nuestros jóvenes, generar respuestas específicas y sobre todo los espacios concretos para que se involucren en la gestión de sus propios destinos cooperativos deben ser una obligación permanente de Cooperativas de las Américas.

En un continente predominantemente juvenil, pero altamente excluyente, las cooperativas somos una de las mejores respuestas para integrar a la juventud en un proyecto de vida que permita su pleno desarrollo y que los involucre activamente en la transformación de nuestro continente”.

"This material represents an effort by Cooperatives of the Americas to learn about, systematize, and improve the actions aimed at youth integration of our cooperatives. The eight case studies are a sample of our rich diversity, as well as the enormous potential represented by the possibility of channeling the spirit of youth of the Americas through our cooperative sector.

Understanding what our young people demand, generating specific responses and especially the specific spaces for them to become involved in managing their own cooperative destinations should be a permanent obligation of Cooperatives of the Americas.

In a predominantly youthful but highly exclusive continent, cooperatives are one of the best responses to integrate youth into a life project that allows their full development and actively involves them in transforming our continent.”
