Initiator, organizer and panelist. At Almedalen 2019, I initiated this seminar, in my role as communications manger at Smart Coop, in collaboration with Coompanion and Swedish Cooperation, where  Kairos Future presented parts of its report on what young people consider important in their future working life. It clearly states that social security is an absolute top priority among young people today. So how does this go together with the emerging gig economy and the rapid growth of precarious jobs where social security is eroded for many? Can cooperation be part of the solution?
