This year’s theme: Reconciliation
The Youth Leadership Forum on Reconciliation will bring together 64 senior high school youth (ages 14-18) selected from across Canada based on their answer to the question “what does Reconciliation mean to you?”. We’re looking for inspiration using whatever medium you choose that will spark ideas or strategies that could foster greater dialogue and understanding among non-Indigenous and Indigenous young people. The week-long leadership forum will be held in Winnipeg from June 27th to July 4, 2020, and will be developed in full partnership with Manitoba’s Indigenous organizations with half of the programming led by Indigenous organizations and community leaders. Youth will be selected from across Canada representing the geographic, linguistic, socio-economic and cultural diversity of the country, with half of the participants selected being Indigenous.
