Global Youth Summit – Day 1

Calgary, Alberta

Canadian and foreign youth, as well as representatives of government, business and non-profit associations, come together as partners to share ideas regarding global political, economic, social and environmental issues. The central aims are: to promote international co-operation; bridge gaps in cultural understanding; encourage the participation of youth in public policy dialogue and development, and highlight examples of organisations where youth may make a positive contribution to society.

Please join us for a celebration in Word, Song, Dance, Pictures and tour the ‘International Avenue’ Pavilion.
