Registration is now open for the Youth Network Chair Summer Institute!
From June 5 to 9, 2023, on the downtown Concordia University campus, we will be reflecting collectively on the multiple ways in which Indigenous youth are mobilizing and are being engaged. Youth, Indigenous partners and researchers will explore – through varied interactive spaces and mediums – these forms, issues and visions of the future. The topics covered will include, among others, engagement in community mobilization, culture, healing, protection of the land, art, intergenerational transmission, governance and research.
Together, participants will get the opportunity to learn, be inspired, network and become mobilized to better support the fulfillment and empowerment of Indigenous youth, through activities including panels, workshops, testimonials, discussions, artistic mediums and sharing of good practices.
The Summer Institute is open to university students and Indigenous youth interested by these issues as well as to the youth partners of the Youth Network Chair (YNC).
Note: The activities will be held in English and French. An on-site translation service will be offered.
