SUMMIT AT THE PIER

October 1-2, 2016
A creative event to empower youth to become collaborative, critical thinkers and problem solvers for the complex, open-ended challenges they face tomorrow.

A catalyst for stronger communities

This October, 500 youth will gather for two days of future-proofing sessions at Ogden Point in beautiful Victoria, BC. The event being held on October 1st and 2nd spans two action-packed days and will feature world-class speakers, inspirational entertainment, and unique idea-generating methods to draw out the most interesting conversations and ideas from youth. On hand to guide and assist the students will be 50 inspiring facilitators, policy makers, business owners, educators, entertainers and others who are part of the “living library” who will act as catalysts for stronger communities.
