Event description

Description

Coinciding with IDW proper, the International Development Week Conference hosted in Vancouver on Saturday, February 10, 2018, will be a jam-packed day of dialogue and participation that will connect and engage youth with community leaders and global changemakers. IDW Conference 2018 will engage the broader community in a conversation about Canada’s role and contribution in humanitarianism, while showcasing local and global initiatives around the country. Additionally, it will also be a platform for youth to network with other passionate youth and industry changemakers, and to get involved in projects and tackling issues they are passionate about.

A diverse panel of speakers and experts will engage and impact youth, community leaders, local changemakers, and scholars in a global conversation about gender equality. Delegates can participate in a collective learning experience about gender equality, while discovering ways and opportunities to take action for positive change. Through networking with changemakers at the event, and discovering new opportunities to engage in community-based research, collaborations, and project initiatives, delegates can further their engagement and learning well beyond the conference itself.
