The Embassy of Canada in Mexico and the Embassy of Mexico in Canada have joined efforts to implement the Can-Mex Youth Lab. The initiative aims to increase collaboration between Mexican and Canadian youth and allow young voices to be heard across the full range of priority topics. In addition, we hope the Lab will generate lasting bonds between all participants and with leaders from the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
A “lab” can be defined as: a place that provides opportunity for experimentation, observation, and practice in a field of study. Through this initiative, a gender-balanced group of youth from Canada and Mexico will have the chance to engage with each other and with key influencers and decision-makers in the Canada-Mexico relationship while also learning the skills of diplomacy and collaborating to identify new pathways forward.
What is the Lab?
The Lab is a joint initiative of the Canadian Embassy in Mexico and the Mexican Embassy in Canada which aims to give young people space to make their voices heard.
