This community engagement event is a living lab that brings to the table professionals from various sectors, community youth voices from the Humber River-Black Creek Youth Council, and other Youth groups in the Greater Toronto Area. The goal is to debate and co-design radical collaboration to accelerate credible and impactful implementation of the UN SDGs by 2030. The dialogue is premised on the knowledge that social transformation needs radical collaboration between a diverse range of voices, disciplines, and sectors, bridging generations of changemakers. Practitioners who act as changemakers in their profession will present action plans across a range of sectors, including women & tech; public health and nursing; housing and social equity; secondary education; post-secondary education. Youth leaders will respond and debate with changemakers for improving and scaling up implementation for social and environmental justice.

This event is organized by CIFAL York’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee as an experimental living lab to build new bridges between the university and society and between professional change makers and youth leaders with cross-sectionalities of women, LGBTQIA+, Black and Indigenous voices through radical collaboration and changemaking. It will exemplify the contribution of community dialogues and living labs to knowledge creation within the humanities and social sciences.
