Survey Purpose

--- française / español / italiano ---

The purpose of this survey is to identify youth cooperatives globally.

What we call a “youth coop” is a cooperative led by and for youth. Examples include a young workers cooperative, a student cooperative or a cooperative program to help young farmers set up. But the youth cooperators have to be associated to the governance of the cooperative.

Why identify youth cooperatives now? Because the Executive Committee of the Youth Network of the International Cooperative Alliance is organizing a large campaign to identify, map and connect youth cooperatives around the world. The starting point is this survey, and the campaign will continue until July 2019. In July 2019 an event for youth will be held. Those who complete the survey may be selected to come for free, with your travel costs covered.

This is not an anonymous survey. The responses will be used to populate a foundational database of youth cooperatives in the world that we hope to build on. We also would like to ask you some questions about what you think is needed to further proliferate the involvement of youth in co-operatives. It will take 15 to 20 minutes of your precious time, and your participation will be highly appreciated.
This survey can be stopped and started. You will not lose your information if you need to stop and pick it back up later. The survey should be completed by one representative from each youth co-op.
When you finish, please share this survey with other youth coops you know of!
