Policy Coordinator for the ICA-EU Partnership at the ICA Global office in Brussels

“GYF20 was a blast of power, skills and cooperation! We have always high expectations for our coops4dev🌍 activities, but the GYF20 re-activated our motivation to build better for the next generation of the Cooperative movement. In a highly competitive working environment that youth feels neglected, voiceless, underrepresented – our desire was to tackle all this with the “magic wand” of capacity building and action for youth through quality trainings and safe spaces of political expression that do not look on cooperative entrepreneurship as the mean for sole profit, but as the mean to improve the rights of youth in work, in society, in economy. Can’t wait for its second edition and see how this community of highly skilled enthusiasts can uptake the wealth of knowledge generated during GYF, fostering further cooperation and solidarity across the global community!”
