Youth Summit deepen the dialogue around the opportunities and challenges of the future of work in Canada
Around 120 youth leaders from Canada gathered online to debate about the post-COVID-19 future of work. During the #ffwd2020 summit, they identified the most urgent issues related to the future of work, including universal basic income, financial literacy, the gig economy, community mobilisation, and inequality. Young leaders who participated in the summit are developing concrete projects to address the challenges related to the future work. These projects will be eligible for post-summit funding by the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) Foundation . The foundation is also contributing with CAD$200 000 to help young participants to work on their projects for six months after the event.
