Event description
The 1UP Toronto Conference brings together secondary school students from Toronto to learn about urban issues and their role as changemakers

About this Event

Future Focus.

This year, we are teaming up with RU A Planner, a youth outreach group from Ryerson School of Urban and Regional Planning, to host our fourth annual youth conference, “Future Focus".

Future Focus will highlight ideas and projects that transform old systems and infrastructure in the city and give them new purpose and uses.

1UPToronto Conference 2020 will feature:

  • Inspirational talks by movers and shakers in the fields of urban planning and architecture, art and design, engineering and technology, and community development
  • 1UP School Chapters’ Demo presented by secondary school students to showcase their in-progress design-build community projects
  • A Design Jam where participants will work in teams to brainstorm, design, and prototype solutions for real life challenges affecting youth in urban communities

What's happening

  • Design Jam team case competition + pitch
  • Youth Power school chapter student demos
  • Network with city building professionals
  • Lunch + Snacks provided

What you'll leave with:

  • Creative ideas and confidence to make your own mark
  • Design Thinking process + problem solving tools for any project
  • Opportunities to get involved in addressing real-world challenges
  • Connections to Toronto's innovative leaders

Who is this conference for?

High school students aspiring to become city builders and community changemakers. If you're curious about urban planning and architecture, art and design, engineering and technology, and community development, or just want to get more involved outside of school, you're in the right place!

What do I need to know or bring?

Just an open mind to learn and create! No experience required. We'll be providing lunch, snacks, and conference gear. Invite your friends (please have them register here too), but don't worry about getting a team together for the Design Jam - we'll be organizing everyone into teams at the conference.
