Workshop: Elevating Youth Engagement from International Exposure to Local Action

12:15 – 12:50

Recent years have seen an increased presence of youth in international dialogue and knowledge exchange on issues of sustainability. Come join us in this human library workshop and exchange with youth participants on what future leaders can gain from international exposure to empower change in our city.



  • How and where can young people identify the resources and support that they need to gain experience and exposure – locally, regionally and globally?
  • How are young people translating their international exposure and experience of the sustainability transition to local action and career development – via partnerships and networks, skills and knowledge?
  • How can youth organizations empower youth for change?
