Are you a youth age 13-20 who wants to share your perspective to improve the lives of immigrants and refugess?

These workshops will be a platform for children and young people to “have the floor,” to share their perspectives and input for policy makers to make changes.The youth-Led discussions will be on “Youth on the Move” and focus on children and youth as refugees in the UNCRC.

We are running this awesome event on 2 seperate dates, 1 in English and 1 in French, so come participate in the language you feel most comfortable!

Free lunch and prizes included!


What is it?

Shaking the Movers is an annual youth-driven and youth-led workshops. It is a space designed to encourage children and youth to consider the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) in the context of their lives. Shaking the Movers provides a unique opportunity for children and youth to exercise their right to take part in important civil and political processes where their voices will be listened to and heard. The Landon Pearson Centre designed these workshops to provide a space for children and young people to “have the floor,” to present their unique perspectives and experiences, and to provide specific recommendations and input for policy makers (the movers) to make changes!

What does participation mean?

Participants will be encouraged to openly engage in discussions with other youth. The youth-led discussions will be shared and integrated into a report that will be widely distributed to decision-makers concerned with the implementation of children’s rights. By participating in the annual Shaking the Movers conference, youth voices will be shared with numerous children’s rights forums across Canada over the next year!
