The Spirit of Social Change: Advancing a conversation about youth, spirituality and social action
A partnership between the Couchiching Institute of Public Affairs and the Inspirit Foundation, with support from the Baha'i Community of Canada and McGill University.
For many youth committed to social change, matters of religion and/or spirituality are not simply private beliefs; they inform the values and principles that inspire their commitment to social action.
How do young people view the connection between their beliefs or sense of purpose, and their actions in the world? Can religions address the common good or are they only concerned with their particular interests? And what does it take to motivate and inspire youth to contribute to social progress?
Join us for a lunch-time discussion, the second in a series of conversations on “Youth, Spirituality, and Social Action” to be held in cities across Canada. Share your thoughts afterwards on camera, and contribute towards the advancement of the national discourse about youth in Canada.
