From Tuesday, February 16 to Friday, February 19, 2021.
Online – Zoom
The French for the Future Local Forum, in collaboration with the Campus Saint-Jean of the University of Alberta, will bring together approximately 50-100 students in grades 10 to 12 from French immersion schools and Francophones in the Edmonton region and northern Alberta to prepare for a future in French. Due to the unexpected nature of this pandemic, the Local Forum will take place online over several days on February 16, 17, 18, 19, 2021.
Like every year, and even more so this year, we have designed interactive workshops, a TED Talks style lecture series and many more activities. In addition to experiencing a program that is both entertaining and educational, students will also have the opportunity to meet engaging bilingual mentors, to forge links with other students in the province and to broaden their knowledge of the local and international Francophonie, enough to stimulate the pride of the language that unites us!
This event has always been very much appreciated by young people in the past and this year, without exception, it will be a wonderful experience for the participants.
Come in large numbers to discover the joys of the French language!
