Participate alongside the YMCA!
COP 26 Collective (from November 9 to November 19 2020 2019 Glasgow, Scotland)
Participate Alongside the YMCA!
For several years now, student groups and members of civil society have organized collectives to participate in different international meetings, such as World Social Forums and major global conferences.
Since 2008, the YMCA, in partnership with UNI-Alter, has organized several Collectifs de la société civile québécoise to attend large-scale international events, such as the Americas Social Forum in Guatemala City (Guatemala) in October 2008 and the People’s Summit, which operated on the fringes of the Rio +20 – United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in June 2012.
By organizing these collectives, the YMCA makes it possible for citizens interested in the alter-globalization movement to learn more about global issues and, subsequently, make a concrete difference within their own community.
