International Seminar 2021: Applications Open!

The International Seminar is an annual WUSC event for young leaders from around the world to collaborate, share ideas and create long lasting relationships. Each year explores a different contemporary development issue through youth-driven ideas, research and solutions. Since its first iteration in 1948, the International Seminar has seen thousands of participants collaborate on projects linked to women in entrepreneurship, refugee self-reliance and more. Highlights from past International Seminars can be found here.

For the first time ever, this year’s International Seminar will be held online! From May 10 to June 18, young leaders from Canada, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Uganda will learn about and use systems mapping and analysis tools to understand the challenges faced by youth, especially young women and young refugees. As a participant, you will be equipped with systems thinking tools and skills through various workshops, professional mentorship, and networking opportunities throughout the six-week event!

Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents are eligible to apply. Any questions? Email [email protected]. Deadline to submit your application is March 29.
