The Under 25s - CHF BC Spring Education Conference 2017

The entire housing co-op movement in Canada wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the energy, enthusiasm and vision of people under 25. What role do younger members have in the movement now? Come and find out, and share ideas for young member engagement in your housing co-op.

In this workshop we’ll ask ourselves the question, "If it was possible for young people to be co-op housing leaders in the past, then is that also true today?".

The housing co-op sector needs leadership renewal and to plan for succession: younger members play a critical role in this.

A co-op pioneer from the launch of the movement will share insights about what the young founders were able to achieve in the 1970s and 80s. We'll also hear directly from young members who are taking the initiative and making positive changes in their communities today.

Co-op members of all ages are welcome to join us. Come to gain insights and share ideas for young member engagement in the housing co-op movement.
