This past October, cooperators from around the world gathered for the Imagine Conference and International Cooperative Summit in Quebec. The experience was nothing short of inspiring. The room was approximately the size of three football fields filled with people dedicated to making the world a better place! You can imagine the positive energy and spirit this gathering coalesced to celebrate the 2012 Year of Cooperatives declared by the United Nations.
Each day was as stimulating as the next, as conference and summit participants heard from economists, scholars, elected officials, and cooperative leadership from around the globe. Wish you had been there? Well you can be virtually!
