Projects & Campaigns
150 Years Young
As a signature initative project for Canada 150, we're dressing down democracy by sharing the diverse ways millennials are having an impact in their communities through creative interventions.
In partnership with Forum Jeunesse de L'Ile de Montreal, 19 youth ambassadors are consulting their peers across Montreal culminating in a youth summit that will inform the City of Montreal's next youth strategy.
Strategic Voting workshops
We designed Civic Participation Workshops that both engaged 180 youth and served as a research tool into young people's perceptions of strategic voting.
