6 Degrees will bring 20 national rapporteurs from the ICC network to Toronto – 10 from the Cultural Access Pass program and 10 from the Building Citizenship program – that will drive important discussions on-site and carry those ideas off-site, on behalf of the ICC. Rapporteurs will be tasked with reporting on their experiences. Each report will be published and shared online.
“Le monde est en crise. We thought we were heading towards more inclusive societies. Instead, we are at risk of regressing to cruder and more exclusionary notions of belonging. 6 Degrés traite le titre qui se trouve sur la première page de toutes nos vies. It brings thinkers, doers, artists, politicians and civil society leaders together to talk about what is really happening in the world. Using bold methods, we’ll recast old ideas and language that are failing, and propose radical, practical solutions. C’est le moment pour 6 Degrés.”
