Co-op Mic is ICA-AP’s newest initiative to use the power of a public forum for deliberating and discussing co-operatives. A platform where we get the opportunity to invite experts, entrepreneurs and friends of the cooperative movement, to share their experiences, ideas and thoughts on mainstreaming cooperatives within the development discourse.


Our first speaker was Dr. Gopi Ghosh who spoke on the topic of ‘Cooperatives in India and their potential in the 21st century. Dr. Ghosh is an inspirational speaker who is a strategic consultant in agriculture, sustainable development, knowledge management, cooperatives and creativity. A Fulbright scholar, he has extensive experience of working with a variety of cooperatives in India and abroad.


The first instalment of Co-op mic was immensely successful with a large online audience watching the live streaming of the talk.
