6 Degrees connects thinkers and doers to drive the global conversation on inclusion and citizenship

6 Degrees in Year Two / La deuxième année de 6 degrés

From the moment we began working on 6 Degrees Citizen Space, well before Brexit and Donald Trump, we were aware of an emerging global appetite for a progressive narrative around inclusion and immigration rooted in the Canadian experience...

Dès l’instant où nous avons commencé à mettre sur pied l’espace citoyen 6 Degrés au printemps 2015, bien avant le Brexit et Donald Trump, nous savions qu’il existait un intérêt mondial émergent pour une discussion progressive sur l’inclusion et l’immigration enchâssées dans l’expérience canadienne...

Why 6 Degrees?

6 Degrees challenges our unsettled age. It is about what we can do to counter rising nativism and exclusion, and how we can go about doing it. 6 Degrees is about connection, conversation, artistic representation, online engagement, and the power that comes from bringing people together.
