Using a PechaKucha format (20 slides, shown for 20 seconds each), presenters will share stories about how their youth-engaged* research can improve health, social, and/or economic wellbeing for young people.

*research led by or done in meaningful collaboration with youth (12 to 29 years)

Led by Tanvi Bhatia, writer, facilitator, and Geist magazine’s associate editor, this evening will be a chance to learn from and network with BC youth, researchers, policy-makers and knowledge users who are passionate about using research to improve the wellbeing of young people.
