Top 20 Under 20TM and Social Innovation Symposium

This year marks the inaugural year for Plan Canada to host the Social Innovation Symposium. A total of 40 individuals, between the ages of 14 and 20, will be selected to participate based on an application process. 20 spots are reserved for recipients of the prestigious Top 20 Under 20TM Award and the remaining spots are held for 20 Agents of Change.

The Social Innovation Symposium is a three day conference dedicated to empowering these 40 young leaders by providing opportunities to learn from one another, collaborate on issues they are passionate about, and create sustainable action plans to continue to make their mark in the world. The Social Innovation Symposium will culminate in the Top 20 Under 20TM Awards ceremony, where the recipients will be recognized and all the participants from the Symposium will share their collective experience and action plans with key partners and stakeholders in the community.

Two ways to participate:

Apply to win the Top 20 Under 20TM Award
