The Sandbox Project Conference

Toronto, Ontario
January 21, 2016

3rd floor, TELUS House, 25 York Street

In its sixth year, The Sandbox Project Conference is a workshop-style event where NGOs, corporate Canada, health practitioners, policy makers and young people get together to collaborate on improving the health and wellbeing of Canada’s kids and youth. MC’d by Canadian beach volleyball Olympian Martin Reader, the day will include updates from The Sandbox Project’s leadership in the areas of Environmental Health, Growing Healthy Bodies, Injury Prevention and Mental Health as well as an update by The Sandbox Project Founder, Dr. K. Kellie Leitch, MP.

For the conference afternoon, we’re excited to welcome Ric Young, Distinguished Visiting Professor of Social Innovation at Ryerson University, to facilitate a one-of-a-kind collaborative session. His keynote will address Courage, Creativity and Collaboration as linked dimensions in improving the wellbeing of children and youth.
