ACCESS to help Ignite Change at Global Youth Assembly


The Ignite Change Now! Global Youth Assembly (GYA) is hosted in Alberta by the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights this July. Join ACCESS and hundreds youth and young professionals from varying backgrounds and over 30 countries to explore the theme Our World. Our Water.

With world class speakers like Fabien Cousteau and Justin Trudeau, skill development workshops, peer-led events and programming, youth at the GYA will unite to help to turn ripples into waves.

This year, ACCESS is excited to host a workshop titled Activism on the Web 2.0.

Together, our individual actions, like drops of water, can create ripple effects around the world. ACCESS will be at the Global Youth Assembly 2011 and so can you by Igniting Change Now.

Check out the Global Youth Assembly song below. Also featured on our Speak Up for Change Blog is another video about the GYA, which you can watch here.
