All Change Starts Today Events

Gender Justice Conference

Change Starts Today will be organizing its annual one-day conference – this year, with a focus on gender justice. Looking to inspire and instill passion within the next generation of youth, the issues of focus will be healthy relationships, the LGBTQ+ community, immigrants and refugees, and the future of feminism. The team is working towards building a generation of fearless youth, achieved through interactive simulations, meaningful discussions and motivational speakers with their stories, during the conference.

York Region Youth Town Hall

Change Starts Today hosted a first of its kind event to target youth apathy in politics in October 2018. The York Region Youth Town Hall was an event organized by the Social Planning Council of York Region, 360 Kids, and L.I.G.H.T. It brought together mayoral and regional councillor candidates from across York Region to meet and talk with youth. Simultaneously, youth were able to speak with candidates about what is important to them at municipal and regional levels, and enter the world of voting.
