This is a competition offered to young people in all of Scotland’s schools. We are looking for them to come up with a good idea and a business plan which involves setting up and running a Young Co-op within their school. Ideally we would like to see all stages of the school involved, but we are open to all proposals.
First and foremost we want to see a viable business proposition which must be run on a democratic basis and in line with co-operative values and principles. We would also favour business ideas in the area of renewable energy, ethical trading or ones that provide much needed products or services for your local community.
