Youth Co-op Links

Greetings MYDAS team,
Well, my current project out of Lobie's little box (as I lovingly refer to the office at 129 Kent Street), has been to re-vamp the CoopZone website. So, this project, which at first seemed a tedious, spreadsheet-driven task of searching through a maze of co-op related websites, has turned into a valuable learning tool, as I have now increased my resource pool to an exponential depth!

I came upon a few youth co-op sites that are worth mentioning here:

This is the BC Institute for Co-operatives Study Youth site, which includes mention of a book titled 'Youth Re-inventing Co-operatives':

http://bcics.uvic.ca/youthzone/youth_reinvent_book.php

Also, there is an International Youth Co-opertive Network:

And, last but not least, there is the

International
Building Co-operative Futures Youth Conference

Co-operating Out of Poverty: Can Co-ops Save the World?

Hope that everyone is prospering in their respective fields, and I look forward to meeting some of you in person soon!
