Join us for two full days of inspiring, informative, and incredible speakers! VIDEA’s second annual Virtual Youth Conference, Resist and Reclaim Our Power, is scheduled for October 19th and 20th, 2022. Tailored to youth and students grade 9 and up, the conference is free to join and will take place over Zoom.
We invite Indigenous youth from Turtle Island (Canada), Zambia, Uganda and Ghana to join us to celebrate, share and dream big!
The theme of this year’s conference is sexual and reproductive health rights and climate justice – two incredibly important and interconnected topics. We will be joined by some amazing keynotes, including Tony TooSick, Chelazon Leroux (of Canada’s Drag Race season 3), and so many wonderful speakers who we can’t wait to share with you!
Participants will learn about important issues included in curriculum across the country, including the interconnection of social justice issues, worldviews, power, culture and community, global interconnectedness and climate justice. You can join us for one session (maybe one of the incredible keynotes) or multiple!
Due to time zones, earlier sessions will allow you to share space with students joining from across Uganda and Zambia, and, as we move later in the day, sessions will be geared towards youth joining from across Turtle Island.
