GLOBAL INNOVATION COOP SUMMIT

The aim of GLOBAL INNOVATION COOP SUMMIT is to create a space for cooperative leaders
from all sectors around the world to share, discuss, learn, and together build a more inclusive plural economy in the innovation trend.



Through these periodic events, we will explore new trends in technological and social innovation (management, leadership, governance, etc.), to prepare the cooperative business model for the challenges it faces and those to come.

Through its basic governance principles practiced for over 150 years, today, the cooperative market can offer a path to the traditional market based on respect for sustainable development, equality, inclusive values, and people-centered principles.

However, in order to assume this role of a leader in directing the “new normal”, the cooperative market must remain agile, innovative, updated and inclined towards digital adaptation, something that has been talked about vastly and is at the core of any market today.



Context

Exponential
We are living one of the most exciting times like never before. A time of new discoveries and rapid change happening at an exponential rate. But are we ready to take it all in?

author

Faster
There is no historical precedent for this current phenomenon, also known as the 4th Industrial Revolution, in terms of speed, scope or impact on everything in our lives. So how do, as humans, we wrap our minds around this concept and make sure we don't leave anyone behind?

author

Humanity
What has always characterized the cooperative business model is its sense of fairness, inclusion, sharing power and pooling for the benefit of all. So, let's see how to harness the power of exponential technology for the benefit of all.

Moving ahead in the new Normal - Welcoming word



Introduction to the 20th of April’s event
  • Jean-Louis Bancel, facilitator of the evet


THE FUTURE OF CO OPERATION

As 20th Century philosopher Bertrand Russell said, ‘The only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation’ and Rose Marley, CEO of Co operatives UK will provide a keynote with the reality of what this means on its 100th anniversary in 2054. The future of co operation is about to be impacted with technological advances that will completely change the way we live , work and consume and create the optimum conditions for a renaissance in the worldwide co operative movement.

  • Rose Marley, CEO, COOP



EXISTENTIAL FLUIDITY:
THE FUTURE OF COOPERATIVES IN THE AGE OF THE CONVERGENCE AND ANTIFRAGILITY MOVEMENTS.

We now live in a new world. Today, the top performers have either reinvented themselves or explored fundamentally novel growth opportunities, powered by the possibilities of "Convergence" that integrates historically distinct technological and scientific disciplines. "Convergence" erases the boundaries between the digital, physical, and online environments and generates unprecedented opportunities for science, technology and business. But in today's fluid world, being collaborative, adaptive and resilient is not sufficient for survival and growth. Coops also need to cultivate "Anti-fragility" to persevere in the face of continuous acceleration, volatility, and adversity, feed on these conditions to grow stronger, improve their sense-making capabilities, and develop a bias to action.

  • Dr. Fotis Filippopoulos, Corporate Innovation Specialist


3 INNOVATIVE SHOWCASES


LET’S DIG DEEPER INTO SHOWCASE

A discussion will take place. From their experience, Fotis and Rose will share with the 3 cooperatives, ideas, and ways of do ing things to maintain the development of these cooperatives. We will learn more about why these organisations made certain choices over others and what led them to success and what they could do to be even more successful.

  • Facilitated by Jean Louis Bancel


Questions from viewers will be asked to panelists



Keep tuned, more to come
