Equal Futures 2022 Incubator Session: Youth Engagement

Creating Pathways for Local to Global Action

May 25, 2022, 1:30 - 3 pm EDT

Join the Equal Futures Network, a CanWaCH initiative, for an interactive incubator session exploring meaningful youth engagement in the lead up to our first-ever gender equality summit, Equal Futures 2022, from June 7-8, 2022 in Ottawa.

Representatives from the Canadian chapter of the International Youth Alliance for Family Planning (IYAFP) will present preliminary findings from an environmental scan of youth activities within the international cooperation sector and a draft framework for an organization-wide youth engagement strategy.

Participants will have the opportunity to share their insights on meaningful youth inclusion within CanWaCH initiatives, such as the Equal Futures Network and its gender equality summits. This session will also explore opportunities to connect local youth movements in Canada with like-minded youth movements around the world.
