The National Youth Debate: Leadership for a Sustainable Future is a federal pre-election debate on the political leadership required for a sustainable and prosperous Canada, using the UN Sustainable Development Goals as an orienting framework. The youth debate provides a unique and innovative opportunity in electoral engagement by giving young political leaders centre stage to offer their own perspectives on their party’s vision in contributing to a better Canada and a better world. The event provides political leaders the opportunity to listen and reflect on what youth in their own party are advocating. Using the Sustainable Development Goals as a framework allows a broader vision to be communicated and to set the stage for more targeted and specific political debates that will taking place during the 2019 election campaign. 

Livestreaming of the event will also be available. Details to come closer to the date of the event.
