Coalition of Manitoba Cultural Communities for Families Inc. and 4better2morrow a non-profit European global initiative supporting today’s youth have joined forces to offer two on-line sessions to best co-create impact for a better tomorrow. We have a shared vision to make the world a better, more inclusive and sustainable place for all. What connects us is that we believe in the future generation are the true change-makers who will create a better world by empowering youth now.
Each of our teams from different countries will bring together different skills, knowledge and access to diverse youth in our respective countries, who will be interested and be willing to explore together their mental health and well-being in a time of the COVID pandemic. We are fully committed to ensuring the diversity and inclusion of youth from different backgrounds and lived experiences.

Who can participate?
We are co-facilitating two FREE online workshops for youth from both Canada and Europe, from diverse communities, and in particular young adults (age 18-23) who identify themselves coming from an immigrant or refugee experience.
Although in English we welcome also those not fully proficient in it.
And, do not hesitate to bring a friend (have them register also) What can you expect?
We offer a deep exploration of your “lived and felt experiences”, living as immigrants or refugees in covid times. Sharing with each other stories that build new relationships, new connections with youth all with different life-experiences.
Together, identify and share challenges you experience with having limited access to community services due to covid restrictions. Together, we will formulate the start of an advocacy approach you can contribute to, participate in.
