Under the theme, “Embracing Our Co-op Identity,” the 2021 Cooperative IMPACT Conference will challenge cooperators everywhere to deepen their understanding of the values and principles that truly make cooperative enterprise unique.
This year’s programming echoes that challenge. We’ll explore the cooperative difference in home care, learn how worker cooperatives can pave the way to a just and equitable recovery, reimagine cooperative Appalachia, hear how the Colorado solar energy industry is providing a powerful approach to expanding the cooperative economy, and much more! Our dedicated international programming—available to development practitioners free of charge—will cover entrepreneurship, climate change and co-op principles in practice. Made possible by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), these sessions are sponsored by the U.S. Overseas Cooperative Development Council (OCDC) and its members.
