2012, the International Year of Co-operatives, was a great opportunity to raise the profile of the Co-operative and Mutual movement, and worldwide the movement is now fired up for action. The year in Wales was buoyant with events across Wales including the Co-operative Group’s ICD Conference and a series of research papers published by the Wales Co-operative Centre.

The year finished off with the announcement by the Business Minister, Edwina Hart, the full list of who would serve on the  Assembly Commission looking at the Co-operative and Mutual Sector in Wales to be chaired by Andrew Davies (previously an Assembly Member and Business Minister)

 2013 is the start of the International Co-operative Alliance’s Co‑operative Decade  
This intends to take the co-operative way of doing business to a new level.
At its heart is the “2020 challenge” which is that by 2020, co-operatives will become:-

  • The acknowledged leader in economic, social and environmental sustainability
  • The business model preferred by people
  • The fastest growing form of enterprise

Co-Forum 2013 is a unique chance for Credit Unions and Co-operatives in Wales to gather together in a comfortable setting to discuss their future plans.

Co-Forum 2013 will be focussed on partnership, discussion and strategy development.

Co-Forum 2013 is modestly priced thanks to the generous support of our sponsors.

Co-Forum 2013 is a conversation not a lecture. We hope you will come and participate in the debate and take up the 2020 challenge
