The YES Cooperation Media Club

  12 January 2022

Our friends at The YES (Youth Excellence Society)—organizers of the popular YES Summer Camp—are organizing another exciting event for youth between 15-20. The YES Cooperation Media Club Stream will be especially interesting to youth living in housing co-operative,

Their goal is to bring together youth from across the provinces to discuss topics like empathy, perspective building, leadership, and co-operation. Through curated lists of some favourite TedTalks, podcasts, videos, documentaries, articles, and more, The YES will be facilitating important conversations about relevant topics with the help of today’s most creative, innovative, and caring leaders and thinkers – our youth!

So much of our world is framed around competition, but it’s amazing to think about all the ways that cooperation is present in our lives. What would it look like to think about nature, human beings, our economy, leadership, and human nature as co-operative? How would that affect our connection to nature, to others, to our work and our choices?

The YES Cooperation Media Club Stream will introduce youth to exciting new ideas, stories, information and theories that will open up new possibilities for the way they (and by extension, we) think about the world.

Cost: $125  $750

The Co-ops Stream has been generously subsidized in cost by Co-operators.
