Youth Engagement in Social Enterprise and Co-operative Development: Supporting Economic Adaptation in Rural Communities in Atlantic Canada in Context of Covid 19

Communities and regions throughout Canada have just been hit with a bomb that is a major threat multiplier: Covid 19. Across the country, rural municipalities that were already struggling economically are now struggling even more with how they should move forward, and support economic recovery and stabilization.
This research project will focus on how to rapidly engage youth in social enterprise, community enterprise and the co-operative model as a means of helping to rebuild and strengthen the economies of their communities in the context of Covid 19 and its aftermath.
