Dal students Harley Johnson and Hasan Sinan joined about 250 other youth leaders from across Canada last month in Winnipeg to learn, collaborate and work towards improving relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
The fifth annual National Youth Reconciliation Conference brought attendees from all provinces and territories together to explore the idea of “Youth Leading the Good Life” and opened meaningful dialogue on reconciliation and decolonization in Canada.
As Respect Reps at Dal, Harley and Hasan are already focused on creating an inclusive community for the student body at the university by providing peer education support and facilitating workshops around topics of diversity and safe spaces around campus.
