About the Wisdom2Action Event Series

The Wisdom2Action (W2A) event series was launched by the Children and Youth in Challenging Contexts (CYCC) Network in December 2013.

The W2A model operates off of the principle that everyone in the room has important knowledge to share. We depart from traditional conference style formats, and have instead created a highly participatory design that allows all participants the opportunity to present their ideas or programs, direct the agenda for the day, and host conversations that are meaningful to them. Learn more about what you can expect at these events by downloading the W2A Brochure below.
