Plan International Canada is hosting a Solutions Lab, a free program that supports young people to be active drivers of change, similar to a ‘hackathon’ or a ‘design jam’.
The event is open to all youth in Canada between the ages of 14 to 24. This year, it will be in a hybrid format (online and in-person) and will take place on Saturday, February 25th, from 1PM to 5PM ET.
During this year’s event, youth participants will work to build their knowledge of the impact of social media on body confidence and self-esteem issues that affect girls globally, and how Plan International Canada works to address the issue. After doing so, they will work in teams to design innovative responses to the issues. They will then present to a panel of experts with the goal of receiving seed funding to bring their amazing ideas to life.
This event presents a great opportunity for young people to learn how they can get involved in issues they’re passionate about here in Canada and around the world, while also hearing from subject matter experts on strategies and tools young people can use to become active leaders.
