A first cohort selected for our Social Innovation Lab!
A group of teens will meet for 9 days in July to acquire knowledge and new digital skills, visit Montreal startups and work with mentors, including university students and young professionals.
The Lab aims to offer young people from all backgrounds an opportunity to devise innovative and creative technological solutions to pressing social challenges, in a welcoming environment led by young people too while being financially compensated for their time.
Can’t wait to see what they will come up with!
If you'd like to take part in the Lab launch without being part of the cohort, that's also possible!
On June 22, from 12-1pm, make a difference and participate in a 1-hour online bilingual consultation on version 3.0 of UNESCO’s Safeguarding freedom of expression and access to information: guidelines for a multistakeholder approach in the context of regulating digital platforms. As a token of appreciation for your participation, we will be providing a $20 Amazon gift card after you attend the event.
