2018 Toronto Intensive - Next Up Ontario

Next Up Ontario's Sustainable Leadership in Urgent Times, a weekend workshop for young adults committed to building social and environmental justice movements, is coming to Toronto April 6th - 8th. 

Over three full days, we will work to confront the uncertain times we live in by cultivating and refining the skills that make change possible. You’ll learn more about yourself and your values and practice turning your ideas into action. Provocative guests leading social change in Toronto will challenge you with new ways of thinking. You’ll share space with folks working for more just communities in different ways and join a national network of past participants dedicated to fighting for social and environmental justice. 

Some of the topics we’ll explore include:

  • anti-oppression and decolonization
  • community organizing and campaign building
  • theories of change-making
  • storytelling and purpose
  • radical self care and combating burnout
