Update: we’ve extended the deadline for applications for the CUTA BC youth summit! The new deadline is now Monday, February 21, 2011, not Monday, January 31 as previously stated.
Again, if you’re aged 18-30, live in BC, and are interested in attending—apply today! Check out translink.ca/bcyouthsummit for all the details.
For a little background: the Canadian Urban Transportation Association (CUTA) partners with local agencies to host a youth conference, encouraging young people to learn about transportation, sustainability, and planning. This year, TransLink, BC Transit, and CUTA will sponsor 45 or so youth to attend our conference in Vancouver from August 19-21, 2011.
If you’re interested in how past conferences have gone, take a look CUTA’s special November 2008 newsletter, profiling the youth summits and previous participants. You can also see the Facebook page for the 2008 CUTA Youth Summit held in Vancouver, which has photos and more!
And once again, here’s the list of CUTA regional youth summits happening across Canada, in case you aren’t from BC but would still like to attend a summit somewhere.
