YOUCOOPE's Documents

YOUCOOPE is an initiative cofunded by the European Union that aims to encourage educational institutions to include the cooperative model in their curricula and to promote it among young students and entrepreneurs.


Our team of 10 European institutions have designed an innovative blended learning methodology  with resources and tools for educators to integrate cooperative entrepreneurial education’s concepts, skills and real experiences in their classroom. The resources you can find in this page will also encourage educators to seek the collaboration of existing cooperatives from your local context, to both gain awareness but also to facilitate school-to-work transition and real experiences. 


The methodology has been tested in pilot experiences -and subsequently reviewed-, and  it is now made available to download  for any institution to benefit from its results.
