b) Strengthen the business acumen and performance ofcooperative businesseswhile integrating and empowering youth and women withincooperative businesses structures.
c) Improve understanding of the psychosocial behavioural impacts associated with membership incooperative businesses and determine whether those behaviours contribute positively to household and community resilience strategies.
CLEAR Program seeks a video animation service provider capable of producing an animated video incorporating infographics, animated characters and narration.
The service provider will develop a set of 3-4 minute animated and narrated informational video.
The two videos’ design should describethe worker cooperative business model and housing cooperative.
The goal of the first video (Workers Cooperative) is to present the worker cooperative business model as a concrete tool in the hands of young people for improving their employment conditions and access to entrepreneurship.
The second video is to present housing cooperatives as institutions that hold the key to affordable housing dreams. The two videos will be established in a way to inform viewers about the critical role cooperatives play in achieving development goals and to introduce and educate viewers on the concept of workers’ service cooperatives as a means of economic sustainability. The videos will be used as a tool at the disposal of the cooperative movement to promote a better understanding among policy makers of the potential of cooperatives for young people.
Features of the documentary will include how housing cooperatives operate, potential sectors and activities that can attract youth to form worker cooperatives, obstacles that youth can potentially deal with when establishing a cooperative and the reasons behind their “cooperative choice”.
