The International Co-operative Alliance-Asia and Pacific (ICA-AP) conducted the third edition of Asia Pacific Cooperative Youth Summit (APCYS 3.0) which aims to bring together youth from different parts of the region and expose them to the culture of cooperativism. The theme for this year’s APCYS was: “Celebrating Youth as Torchbearers of the Cooperative Identity”, which was a virtual event celebrating the role played by youth in cooperatives, showcased youth entrepreneurs, obtained ideas from youth about new forms of cooperatives, and roused them about cooperatives and their role in it.
CLIMBS Life and General Insurance Cooperative sent five (5) youth delegates who participated in one of the summit’s integral activities, the ‘Coop Pitch Competition’. It is designed to find new and sustainable enterprise ideas on cooperatives. Participants get the opportunity to pitch cooperative business solutions to cater to the needs and aspirations of the youth and community in their country. Out of the 236 entries from youth delegates all around the world, the proposal from the CLIMBS participants was one of the 35 coop pitches evaluated for the final pitch. The 5 CLIMBS youth delegates all have one common aspiration in regards to their pitch, which is to be able to fulfill the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal No. 4: Quality Education – ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
We share some insights which our delegates have taken from the said activity.
