For its first edition, the GYF19 aims at bringing together young entrepreneurs and professionals from all around the world in order to offer them quality training sessions to improve their skills, knowledge and motivation. The entrepreneurship training approach is expected to lead to new solutions and recommendations, to help the attendees learn from the best practices and to foster new ideas and innovation in the field of youth and cooperative entrepreneurship.

In March 2016, the International Co-operative Alliance entered into a partnership with the European Commission, ushering in a new phase of collaboration on strengthening the cooperative movement as development actors.
The ICA-EU partnership ( #coops4dev🌏) aims to bring the cooperative model to the next level within international development policies and programs. It is built around activities focused on increasing visibility, enhancing advocacy, sharing capacity building, strengthening cooperative development networking, and supporting all these with evidence from exhaustive research.
Acting as partners, the regional and global offices of the ICA are driving the actions, in collaboration with members, civil society organisations, international institutions, and the EU.
