Nova Scotia Youth Summit

The Office of the Ombudsman hosted its first ever Youth Summit on October 14, 2017.

Youth from across Nova Scotia gathered together to share their voices and discuss issues concerning them, and how they would like to see the Office of the Ombudsman support and engage with them moving forward. The event was facilitated by a team of youth hosts supported by See Meaning Graphic Facilitation and Wisdom2Action. Below is a video summary of the day. Thank you to everyone who participated in making the event a success!

We look forward to continued engagement with those who expressed interest in participating in an Office of the Ombudsman Youth Advisory Committee.
