This initiative is being supported by the Government of Quebec as part of its Stratégie d’action jeunesse 2016-2021.
WHO: Young engaged English-speaking Quebecers from across Quebec between the ages of 18 and 24 (as of August 13, 2017).
WHAT: The Bishop’s Forum will welcome young English-speaking Quebecers for a week-long Civic Leadership Institute. This initiative is being supported by the Quebec Government as part of its Stratégie d’action jeunesse 2016-2021.
WHEN: August 13th -18th, 2017
WHERE: Bishop’s University, Sherbrooke, Quebec.
WHY: Quebec is better and stronger as a province when its citizens, especially its younger citizens, are informed and knowledgeable about how its systems function. The goal of the Bishop’s Forum is to provide participants an “Inside Look” on how some of the fundamental institutions of Quebec society work. Participants will get insight into how the Quebec National Assembly, political parties, business, community and not-for-profit organizations and the media influence public discourse and public policy. Ultimately, the Forum will give participants not only a sense of what it is like to work in these major sectors, but also how to influence change.
We’re designing the Forum in an engaging and innovative way to help young people put their talents, including their leadership skills, to work to further their own careers and the quality of life in the province. The Bishop’s Forum wants to make Quebec better by equipping young English-speaking Quebecers with the ideas, networks and tools to lead change.
