Governor General Michaëlle Jean invited EWC Journalism & Communications students to the Governor General’s Youth Dialogues
The Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean, 27th Governor General of Canada (2005-2010), invited EWC’s Journalism & Communications participants to the Governor General’s Youth Dialogues – “Flash Drive: A Capital Assignment.” The three-day forum was an initiative of the National Capital Commission (NCC), in partnership with Encounters. Young people from across Canada were grouped together with special guests to take part in discussions and produce short videos reflecting their perspectives on the environment, cultural diversity and youth culture. The youth forum was held to help mark the 150th anniversary of the choice of Ottawa as Canada’s capital.
