6 Degrees

Type: Festival and Event
A bold project of the Institute for Canadian Citizenship, 6 Degrees connects thinkers and doers to drive the global conversation on inclusion and citizenship.

This Canadian-based initiative challenges our unsettled age, and works to counter growing divisions in society by providing forums for conversations and action for inclusion and citizenship.

Through an international series of immersive events, independent research, a global network of allies, and a strong platform for advocacy, 6 Degrees breaks down barriers and brings diverse leaders from all levels of society together to reframe debates around inclusion.
