IPSA AT THE AIESEC CANADA YOUTH TO BUSINESS FORUM
 
On 1-4 June 2020, IPSA was proud to partner up with AIESEC Canada’s Youth to Business Forum (Y2B), which gathered around 500 delegates. This year’s edition of Y2B was for the first time entirely virtual. The theme of the conference was The Climate Movement: Navigating a World in an Environmental Crisis.
 
On June 2, IPSA Executive Director, Kim Fontaine-Skronski, moderated a panel titled Universal Collaboration on Climate Change. The panel brought together diverse perspectives from different industries. Each speaker emphasized the importance of their industry’s impact on the Climate Movement and the steps taken to address climate change challenges. They also discussed the role of youth in the Climate Movement.
 
IPSA also attended this event as an exhibitor through a virtual booth. The staff highlighted IPSA’s efforts to foster universal collaboration through its community of members, Research Committees, World Congress, IPSA Journals, Summer Schools and IPSAMOOCs. Participants were also able to live chat with our booth representatives.
