Summary :

The new global report presents research and analysis based on the direct input of young people in 20 countries. Organised into five chapters - the five ‘E’s: employment, education, inequalities, engagement and civic participation, and entrepreneurship - and presenting a number of practical examples of youth cooperation, the report identifies ways that engagement between young people and cooperatives can be improved. 420 responses from young people were collected and analysed for the research, which surveyed both young cooperators and young people less familiar with the cooperative model.
