Global Connect 2023

Six young adult participants explored the international development sector and themes of sustainability, gender equality, inclusiveness, and more — right here in Alberta! Participants traveled across Alberta and engaged with Alberta international aid organizations, local organizations, and community leaders through dialogue and practical hands-on learning. Participants also worked together to develop and implement activities to engage the public in Alberta on important global issues explored during the program. Keep your eye out for our next Global Connect program running in Spring 2025!

The SDG Hub

This was a space for young Albertans between the ages of 18 and 24 to connect with other young people and mentors from our vast network. This included professional skill development and mentorship to provide participants with opportunities to engage in meaningful dialogue with peers, and take action in their communities.

Top 30 Under 30

The Top 30 Under 30 Award is an annual campaign by the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation. The award features 30 outstanding young people, nominated by their community and selected by a committee of peers, for their commendable work in making the world a more just, fair, and sustainable place for all. Nominations open each year in October!
