Are you in High School? Do you suppose you might be able to create positive change in the universe? Looking for an opportunity to be heard?
Well, we’re listening. Join us in April and we’ll help accelerate your solution(s) to social problems.
Accelerating: Empathy brings together high school students from across the Province who aspire to be leaders of social change to take part in the best experiential educational environment available to them.
Participants are challenged to devise a solution to a timely social issue of their choosing and make a pitch to other participating students. The ideas that receive the most votes will be furthered by teams of 8-10 students over a period of 30 hours.
In order for tomorrow’s leaders of social change to learn, they must do.
When – April 4th and 5th, 2013
Where – World Trade and Convention Centre, Halifax
Who – Nova Scotian High School student
THE PARTICIPANTS (THAT’S YOU!):
Good ideas need great teams, and that’s what we’ll foster at Accelerating: Empathy. With only 60 seconds to pitch their ideas, participants will have to be clever, and get the most out of each second in order to attract votes and other participants to their team. You must be adaptable, open-minded, and unafraid to make mistakes!
Registration is free and easy (what more could you ask for?). Click the button below and you’ll be asked a few details about yourself and you can reserve a spot – and yes, registration is limited; first come, first serve!
THE EMPATHY FACTORY (THAT’S US!):
We empower youth to take action and to make the world a better place. The Empathy Factory was founded on the belief that by instilling empathy in our youth, injustices will be stopped, communities transformed and hope inspired.
