Event description

Description

Canada-China governmental discussions around education, climate change, and free trade are increasing. This is a time when public discourse should be at an all-time high, yet there is currently very little civic space for conversations on the bilateral relationship. Where this gap exists, there is space for young Canadians to become involved. The current decisions, statements, and bilateral policies have long-term effects on youth in both countries.

In this context, the Canada-China Young Professionals Network and the International Development Week Committee at the University of Ottawa are partnering to bring you “Why YOUth Matter in Canada-China Relations” a panel discussion examining how young Canadians can advance the Canada-China relations through the lens of education, climate change, and free trade. This event is meant for both Sinophiles and newbies alike! All are welcome to this informative, engaging and free event.

We are thrilled to announce three panellists:

- Ms. Susan Gregson, Senior Fellow, University of Ottawa Graduate School of Public and International Affairs and former Assistant Deputy Minister for Asia-Pacific at Global Affairs Canada.

- Mr. Philippe Rheault, Senior Advisor to the Minister of International Trade and former Consul General of Canada in Chongqing, China.

- Ms. Jennie Chen, Director of Bilateral Affairs in the International Affairs Branch at Environment and Climate Change Canada.

More information about these panellists will be presented on this page prior to the event.
