For those who cannot attend during the scheduled times, all the sessions will be recorded and made available online via the Congress online platform for viewing at a later time.

For three days, the Congress will host discussions to deepen the cooperative identity by examining its values, strengthening its actions, committing to its principles and living its achievements. The preliminary programme is available here.

The event will feature a range of keynote speakers, including UN Special Rapporteur for Extreme Poverty and Human Rights, Professor Olivier De Schutter; activist and founder of the Self-Employed Women’s Association (SEWA), Ella Bhatt; and ILO Director General, Guy Ryder. The full list of speakers is available here.
