"The GYF was an incredible opportunity to connect and learn from co-operators from across the globe. I was inspired to hear people's stories of how they joined the movement, their roles within co-operatives, the diverse range of cooperatives and their commitment to social justice through cooperation. Well done to all the team who brought this to life, the peer learning aspect was a real success."
