Youth-Engaged Policy: Bringing Youth Perspectives into Governance and Policy
June 17th from 11:00 – 13:00 EST.
The McGill Department of Equity Ethics and Policy, UNICEF Canada, and the ListenUP! for Youth Wellbeing initiative invite you to the final session of our DISRUPTED LIVES: Pandemic Policies for Youth Wellbeing conference. Panelists will share their experiences developing and using strategies such as child and youth impact assessments, youth commissions and other youth accountability mechanisms. The discussion primarily focuses on the Canadian context but will also bring in some international best practice, with Linda Bauld, Chief Social Policy Advisory with the Scottish Government, joining us to speak to their government’s experience using both a youth commission and child and youth impact assessments in the development of their pandemic policies. The event ends with a moderated Youth Reflections panel bringing together a group of young people from across Canada to share their final thoughts on the conference and key recommendations for youth-engaged policy.
To attend this event, please register for the DISRUPTED LIVES conference. Once you have registered, just log back into the site and visit the Auditorium to join us on the 17th.
