Strategic Voting Workshops in Montreal
Apathy is Boring partnered with the Center for the Study of Democratic Citizenship and Making Electoral Democracy Work (MEDW) to conduct Strategic Voting workshops across Montreal. We designed Civic Participation Workshops that both engaged youth and served as a research tool into young people's perceptions of strategic voting. We were warmly welcomed into youth employment centres in the Montreal area, revealing the importance of community partnerships. We provided these workshops to more than 180 youth throughout the year. We used new technology to measure voting habits and provided concrete tools to engage with these young people in a meaningful way.
Civic Engagement workshops were carried out at various Carrefour Jeunesse Emploi across Montreal, DESTA Black Youth Network, Foyer des Jeunes Travailleurs et Travailleuses de Montreal, 03 On Our Own, Maison Tangente, Project Intégration and Ressources Jeunesse de Saint-Laurent.
