OCIC’s Global Changemaker Youth Ambassador Awards are celebrated during International Development Week each year to honour outstanding youth who have demonstrated active engagement with communities and civil society organizations in the promotion of international cooperation and social justice.
“Given the universal significance and magnitude of the new global agenda set by the Sustainable Development Goals, we are inspired by the efforts of these youth ambassadors to work for transformative change and human rights. We are proud to share their stories and calls to action to all Ontarians to be changemakers in our own communities, and globally.” – Kimberly Gibbons, OCIC Executive Director
