Ottawa, October 18, 2016: CBIE is delighted to send a Canadian delegation to participate in the 2016 Youth Global Participation and Humanitarianism Seminar in Taipei, Taiwan, October 11-18, 2016.
This seminar brings together multiple student groups to represent their respective countries in promoting youth dialogue and public participation around global issues.
Our delegation consists of a youth affairs officer and 6 students between the ages of 18 to 25 from Canadian universities and colleges across the country. They will represent Canada through three main projects:
- A workshop presentation on the topic Build Bridges, Not Walls: The Role of Youth in Narrowing the Gap between the Rich and the Poor;
- A national culture exhibition booth to promote Canadian culture and youth policies; and
- A short national cultural performance.
A competition was held last June to select the most qualified students from across the country to join the delegation with the support of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Canada (TECO) representing the interests of the Ministry of Education of the Republic of China.
The delegation is led by Carrie Karsgaard, International Student Advisor at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan. We are excited to see Carrie and the students work together and represent Canada on a global stage.
Stay tuned as CBIE covers their international learning experience in the coming weeks!
