Passionate about social change? Make it happen!

Rebuilding Recreation, Inclusion Alberta's first ever conference for youth ages 16-22, is an opportunity to build your activist skills and develop a toolbox for social change. Throughout the two-day conference November 17-18, 2017, youth will have the opportunity to participate in various sessions all aimed at making recreation more accessible to people of all abilities. Rebuilding Recreation will offer two full days of change-making skills-building through exciting hands-on workshops.

Discover how to make your world more inclusive to folks with (and without!) developmental disabilities through one of the most important parts of life - fun!

By exploring recreation through an activist change-maker's lens, Rebuilding Recreation aims to create a space for dialogue, change, and inclusion. Don't wait for the world to become inclusive - make it happen.
