Imagine 2012

Imagine 2012 is designed to bring together the leadership of the world’s major co-operatives and leading economic thinkers from around the world.

Cooperatives For Sustainable Economic And Social Change

The Conference is being held on the background of economic meltdown of 2008-09, the impact of which is still undiminished and has affected all countries, both Developed and Emerging. One of the most notable feature that has emerged during the period has been that the Co-operatives not only were not affected by economic slow down but they remained vibrant and continued to deliver a variety of services and products at competitive rates and at the same time prospered and emerged financially strong.
