Indigenous and non-Indigenous young people from British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario came together on June 26th for the launch of our new Indigenous-focussed Uncovering Common Ground initiative.

Uncovering Common Ground is a new Roots & Shoots project designed to support young people as they explore different Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives and the concept of reconciliation. Over the course of three days, participants engaged in group discussions, workshops and brainstorming sessions, working together to plan community actions over the course of the year.

Strong bonds were formed during the three-day event through insightful conversations and debates.
