AltGen supports 18-25 year olds to set up worker co-operatives as a collaborative and empowering solution to youth unemployment.

Our role as the next generation should be to create an economy that allows us to earn a living, do what we love and contribute towards nurturing people and our environment rather than destroying it. Co-operatives are a specific form of social enterprise that allow us to do this.

AltGen will achieve this through workshops, an online hub space, residential courses, start up grants and business advice. Creating a new network of youth co-operatives that are constructing a more equal and sustainable economy.
