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.
We had explored the role of cooperatives in the ‘new normal’ and how agility, innovation and digital transformation is fundamental in adapting to the new challenges.
We are now moving ahead in the new normal. We will explore why and how create innovative cooperatives, which will be more than a resilient. They should be antifragile in a converging era.
Technological innovation contributes to the development and wealth of people and their cooperatives, in all sectors of activity, and preserves the environment and its biodiversity and its biodiversity, but is it always for the better good? Which purpose are hiding behind big data processing, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, etc. Are our privacy and autonomy taken into consideration? How are balanced the protection of our personal interests and the impact on the common good?
"IN A GLOBALIZED WORLD SHAKEN BY GREAT UPHEAVALS, WHO WILL BE THE WINNERS OR THE SURVIVORS"?
Big market players whose financial capacity provides access to everything? Smaller entrepreneurs, who are driven by their passion but whose commercial activities are sometimes confined to their territory? Co-operative leaders from different continents will discuss what is so called their identity. They will describe the difference between being deep-rooted in a local cultural; the economic and social environment; how they conduct their activities driven by co-operative values and principles using modern technology and communication tools. There should be no more gaps between talk and action. They will share what they believe provides the best opportunities to build a better, more inclusive, more responsible and environmentally friendly world and enable the co-operative movement to build a more secure future for their identity.
The world is changing whether we like it or not. Doing business is changing in the age of AI, robotics, remote working, hyper connectivity. Humanity is evolving and must adapt quickly, leaving behind entire populations who are unable to keep up, whether in rich or poor countries. The cooperative business model can make a difference through technological, social, and managerial innovations. | *Depending on current Covid-19 situation.
