I-SPARX's Youth Leaders and the York University team gathered for I-SPARX's first Youth Leader Virtual Summit on June 2021 to discuss and share ideas about the importance of knowledge mobilization. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, the group could not meet in person, but many youth leaders attended this year's virtual summit and provided invaluable input that will guide the next steps of the I-SPARX project.
During the summit, youth leaders had the chance to share their views, connect with their peers and the York U team while having snacks and playing virtual games.
Knowledge mobilization (KM) was the summit’s focus, which included a workshop on KM presented by the York U team. After learning more about KM, youth leaders shared their thoughts and ideas while identifying valuable strategies for translating the knowledge gained from the I-SPARX project.
Below are the resources on KM presented during the summit:
