A reminder to apply to the CUTA BC Youth Summit this weekend, if you still want to attend! The deadline is Monday, February 21, 2011.
The conference is for youth aged 18-30 who live in BC and are interested in sustainable transportation—check out translink.ca/bcyouthsummit for all the details.
So what’s the summit all about? Well, every year or so, 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.
