MEC Outdoor Nation Youth Initiative - Spaces Available
July 21, 2014
MEC Outdoor Nation is a new, national youth movement aimed at reconnecting 18-27 year olds with a life played outside.
This demographic shows the steepest decline in physical activity, according to a recent ParticipACTION report. An initiative for young adults and led by young adults, the launch of MEC Outdoor Nation is marked by three weekend summits across the country: Vancouver in September 2014, and Toronto and Montreal in spring 2015. More information on the Vancouver summit.
Each summit brings together 150 young adults to achieve a common purpose: to create and launch projects that inspire other young adults to be active outside. MEC will grant $10,000 per summit for these projects.
HUB can nominate young adult leaders to fill up to 10 seats to attend and participate in the Vancouver summit. If you are interested in being recommended by HUB, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your interest, and we will follow up with more instructions about completing your application to MEC Outdoor Nation.
After the summit, youth will return to their communities to launch projects to get young people active and outside and promoting local organizations like HUB.
