Global Youth Assembly 2013: Human Rights. Health. Ignite Change Now.
You've been waiting for it. So have we. Our 2013 Global Youth Assembly (GYA) is coming your way this summer from August 7th to 10th! Join hundreds of youth from across Canada and around the world to learn, discuss, reflect and collaborate.
This year's theme of HUMAN RIGHTS. HEALTH. IGNITE CHANGE NOW. will challenge you to think broadly about the connections between various aspects of health and human rights. While many approach the word health solely from the medical perspective, this conference will explore how the health of a community encompasses everything from political and civil rights to sports, immigration and, of course, public health. After four days of world-class keynote speakers, skill-building workshops and engaging activities, we guarantee that you'll leave the GYA inspired to make positive changes in your community!
