The International Cooperative Alliance, within the framework of ICA-EU partnership is organizing a session on the capacity building and knowledge sharing through online. This session will take place on 5 March from 3 pm to 4.30 pm CET.
This talk will focus on the opportunities and challenges for workers in developing countries on digital labour platforms based on a survey of 12000 workers around the world. It will discuss what role cooperatives can play in improving their working conditions.
