As part of Crime Prevention Week, held from November 1 to 7, 2020, the Réseau d'échange et de soutien aux actions locales (RÉSAL), of which ICPC is a member, offered a webinar on November 5 on the place of youth in the city, and how sports, arts and recreation can play a protective role in the prevention of crime,
The RESAL provided a space for discussion to highlight different sports, arts and recreational projects that have a positive impact on the lives of young Montrealers, by inviting three panelists to answer the following questions:
- What led you to define your project to meet the needs of youth and what needs does it meet?
- How has this project created a space for youth in the city?
- What success factors were observed in terms of harmonious sharing in the public space?
The invited panelists were Elizabeth-Ann Doyle, Executive and Artistic Director, MU, Ernest Jr. Edmond, Founder, Les Ballons Intensifs, and Claude Majeau, Co-creator of the collective work "J'suis pas juste ...".
