For the first time since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Co-operative Party is returning to your region in one of a series of in-person Conferences being held across all regions and nations of the UK. Members and supporters from across Yorkshire and Humberside are invited to take part in this event in Doncaster on Saturday 25 February from 10.30am to 3pm.
This is your Conference and your chance to meet with Co-op Party members from across the Yorkshire & Humberside region to discuss, debate and take part in workshops as we examine the theme ‘From Crisis to Co-operation‘ by identifying the local co-operative initiatives that really do make a difference to communities in the midst of a cost of living crisis.
As well as hearing examples of best practice from invited guest speakers – we want to hear from you, our members – on how we can widen ownership in our economy and give people the tools and support to tackle the big issues from inequality, hunger and energy provision to green jobs and high street regeneration.
