Help: Conference Instructions

Here's a quick but important explainer on how you can watch conference, submit your questions and more!

How to join conference

Our conference will be livestreamed on our conference website at

You will not need a login or password to watch: simply visit the website and from Saturday morning you will be able to view our embedded livestream and our Q&A box.

All you'll need to do is press play! This should work using any computer, tablet or mobile.


All livestreamed events at conference will be professionally live captioned. If you have any other accessibility requirements, please email and we will do our best to facilitate.

How to ask a question

The majority of our conference events will be followed by a Q&A, and we cannot wait to hear all your questions and thoughts about the ideas, activism and policy we'll be discussing at our sessions. Best of all, it's simple: if a conference event contains a Q&A segment, you will be able to submit your questions to the speaker/panel by typing them into the Q&A box.

For safeguarding purposes, all questions are moderated by our team. Approved questions are then published in the Q&A box, where questions can be "liked" by other people watching the event.

The Chair will then choose from the pool of approved questions: if your question is chosen, the Chair will read it out to the speakers/panel.

If an event doesn't contain a Q&A, the Q&A box will be temporarily closed.

The conference will also be available to watch directly on Facebook and YouTube: however, we will only be taking questions via the Q&A box on our conference website. Therefore we highly recommend that if you wish to ask a question, you watch conference via our conference website.

How to conduct yourself at conference

The Co-operative Party believes that our co-operative values should be reflected in our actions as well as our policies. We want all members and all our event participants to feel safe, welcome and respected in our Party.

We want this Conference to be accessible and welcoming, encouraging maximum attendance and participation and conducted in a friendly and co-operative way and in a manner that enables all views to be heard.

How to share your experience of conference

We want as many people as possible to share their experience of conference on social media. Feel free to Tweet, Facebook and Instagram through conference using our hashtag, #CoopLocal20. We'll be sharing some of the best contributions on the Party accounts.
