IPSA at the Youth to Business Forum

Publication date: Tue, 26 May 2020

Since 2012, AIESEC Canada’s Youth to Business Forum (Y2B) has brought businesses, organizations, governments and students together to engage in a unique dialogue on relevant topics to both Canadian businesses and student communities.

This year’s edition of Y2B, on 1-4 June 2020, will be entirely virtual. The International Political Science Association (IPSA) is partnering up with this online event which will gather 500 participants. IPSA Executive Director Kim Fontaine-Skronski will moderate a panel on Universal Collaboration on 2 June. The panel will bring together diverse perspectives from Export Development Canada, Canada’s Energy Citizens, Air Canada, RBC Future Launch and the Smith School of Business.

IPSA’s Virtual Booth at the Y2B Exhibition
IPSA will also attend this event as an exhibitor through a virtual booth. Delegates will be able to navigate the Expo section using their mouse to approach booths, learn more about exhibitors and live chat with the booth representatives.

Theme of the Conference
The Forum aims to bridge the gap between youth and business, driving Canada forward by exploring different perspectives, sharing ideas, and building a better future together. The theme of the conference is the Climate Movement: Navigating a World in an Environmental Crisis, a movement that strives to find viable solutions to mitigate and adapt to global environmental change. AIESEC in Canada, alongside its partners, has identified two key areas that need to be leveraged within the Climate Movement: Technological Revolution and Universal Collaboration.
