We're excited to announce that registration is now open for the 2016 Amnesty Youth Activist Conference in Saskatchewan. The goals of the Conference are to connect young activists and those interested in getting involved in human rights activism for a day of inspiration and learning!
The Amnesty Youth Conference will take place in Saskatoon on Saturday, October 15 and in Regina on Sunday, October 16.
The agenda will include: a panel discussion featuring experienced activists, Amnesty 101 (an introduction to Amnesty International), and a session on how to be a successful activist and what's next (using your activism skills after the conference). As well, we will hold workshops on Amnesty International's Cobalt campaign, refugee rights, Indigenous rights, and supporting human rights defenders in the Americas.
The morning will start with yoga (optional) and registration at 9 am, with the program officially beginning at 9:45 am. The Conference will finish at 4:30 pm.
