An exciting youth-focused event is coming up, and Smart Waterloo Region needs your help to make it a success.

On January 12th the Smart Waterloo Region team will host a Youth Forum at RIM Park. Co-created with the Smart Cities Innovation Council: Youth Unite Here (SCIC YUH) – a group of local youth representatives, the forum will be interactive, engaging and fun and also include prizes and food.

The goal of the forum is to collect needed feedback from local young people (11-18 years for age) on how to improve child and youth well-being, so all children and youth feel valued, heard and included. The information gathered at the Stakeholder Labs held in December of 2018 will be part of the discussion and the feedback received from youth on January 12 will be included in the final Smart Cities Challenge application.

What can you gain by attending?
