Generating Momentum Conferences

Since 2002, MCIC has hosted Generating Momentum for Our World conferences on international development issues for middle years and high school students.

MCIC’s Generating Momentum for Our World conferences engage hundreds of students from communities across Manitoba on the challenges facing our world. Through hands-on workshops, students focus on engaging and creative ways (including video, music, theatre, and visual arts) to share what they have learned and encourage others to take action.

These conferences offer a unique opportunity for young people to:

  • learn about current global issues,
  • develop leadership skills,
  • take positive action and
  • have fun doing it!

MCIC is proud to offer Generating Momentum for Our World conferences virtually or in person throughout Manitoba. These workshops are full-day programs intended for 1-3 classrooms.

To bring a conference to your school or community this school year, contact MCIC’s Education Specialist by email at or call 204-987-6422.
