The CEPI Youth Conference 2018 will bring together youth from across Unama’ki to listen to stories, discuss and debate ideas, and offer their own insights that will inspire the future of the Island. The conference is designed around three pillars: Leadership, Sustainability, and Entrepreneurship, with a focus on the lake and the environmental stewardship of the Island. Participants will hear from those who have championed the environment all while building thriving enterprises, in addition to workshops led by leaders across sectors, backgrounds, and of all ages. They will also be encouraged to share their own stories, dreams, and aspirations as they relate to building a future in Cape Breton. The conference will be held at the NSCC Strait Area Campus on October 12th-13th.
