About the project Edit

In 2012, the action is happening at the Summer School. Now is the time to take action to remedy the citizen indignation that has reached an international scale and continues to this day.

During four days of activities and formative, enriching, lively, inspiring sessions, you will be called to join forces with participants from all over Quebec and beyond. You will share your interests and worldview with the other participants to develop concrete projects. You will be the creators and developers of local, regional, national, or even international projects for democratic life and citizen engagement, sustainable development and the environment, solidarity and international cooperation, culture and engaged art, or social entrepreneurship and union activities.

At the 2012 Summer School, we are taking action to change the world!

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

The Institut du Nouveau Monde Summer School, over the past 9 years, has become an essential event for socially engaged youth in Quebec and beyond. This lively citizenship school for youth between the ages of 15 and 35, is THE reference point for inspiring conferences, engaging workshops, fascinating activities—not to mention the lively evening events! This this year’s theme, “taking action” will stimulate the creativity of participants who will be called to become true citizen leaders by developing concrete projects. With the support of socially engaged and committed facilitators, participants will create and develop local, regional, national, or even international projects for democratic life and citizen engagement, sustainable development and the environment, solidarity and international cooperation, culture and engaged art, or social entrepreneurship and union activities. At the 2012 Summer School, we are taking action now!

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Now is the time to take action to remedy the citizen indignation that has reached an international scale and continues to this day. From the 16th to the 19th of August, 2012, we will transform indignation into action at the Summer School. The camp’s activities and formative, enriching, lively, inspiring sessions will not only inspire participants, but will also provide fertile ground for them to create dozens of relevant and audacious citizen projects that will truly take root and grow. The Summer School thus actively contributes to the improvement of society and community action. The result will be a more active society and socially engaged citizen leaders.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

What makes the 2012 Summer School an essential event, not to be missed is it’s concrete impact—concrete citizen projects that will be launched in the community. On a personal, local, or international level, these projects, supported by attentive mentors, will take root, develop and grow to become, points of reference. The potential of the Summer School to expand and develop lies in its potential to act as a catalyst and multiplier for social action projects.
