KA2 – Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices
CO.RU offers an ICT based cooperative entrepreneurship training module for rural youth. The objective of this training module is to promote youth participation to cooperatives and enable existing and potential young managers of agricultural cooperatives to identify and address major challenges that are specific to cooperatives in market oriented agricultural development. Cooperatives may find themselves stretched between (at times conflicting) members’ interests, business opportunities and social considerations. Within such context young cooperative managers should ensure sound decision making on service provision for services that are common to many agricultural cooperatives, including supply of farm inputs and marketing. These issues are reflected in the modular structure of training package.
