ACT 4 Global Change invites Atlantic Canadian youth to get informed, get inspired, and take action on global issues. Hosted by the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation with partner organizations across Atlantic Canada, ACT 4 Global Change programs support leadership skills, offer travel opportunities, and provide peer connections for youth who want to make a difference in the world.
ACT 4 Global Change Conference
The ACT 4 Global Change Youth Conference brings together a diverse group of Atlantic Canadian youth aged 15-18 years in a rural setting to learn about global issues and develop skills in an interactive, exciting educational environment. During the conference a variety of workshops are held on topics, for example creating a culture of consent, planning successful events, the triangle of oppression, ethical volunteerism, using poetry as a means for social movement, creating sustainable communities and more. Workshops are hosted by staff, member organizations, past ACIC interns and volunteers. A primary focus is to provide skills that participants can take home to their communities to effect change locally and internationally.
