The global cooperative movement will convene on 1-3 December in Seoul, to reflect on how the movement has addressed the COVID-19 pandemic and other crises with solidarity and resilience. For three days, the Congress will showcase how our cooperative identity is meeting the crises of the 21st century.

The Congress will be preceded by two preparatory events on November 28-30, 2021: the International Cooperative Research Conference and the International Cooperative Law Forum.
