Constance Laisné, founder of AltGen will talk about how co-operative businesses can empower young people to stop fighting for the same jobs and start creating their own work: work that allows them to generate a fair income, do what they love and have a positive social impact; work that will create a more equal, democratic and sustainable economy.
