Upcoming event – Our Voices : Youth Building A Connected City

If you could create a city where people felt connected and not isolated, supported and not alone, how would you do it?

Designed for youth, by youth, the Our Voices: Youth Building a Connected City conference will explore issues related to isolation and disconnection in Metro Vancouver, and offer you the chance to help come up with solutions.

If you are between the ages 15 and 26, we invite you to take part in this exciting, interactive day-long event! As a conference participant, you will share your stories, discuss strategies for change, and help craft recommendations for Metro Vancouver’s decision makers to build a more connected city.
