The two-day Summit attracted over 120 attendees who came in to listen to the keynote lectures on populism, participate in the student-led panel discussion on feminism and explore the students’ projects. The Summit was successful in raising awareness about global populist trends and starting a broader discussion on meaningful civic participation in the digital era, cultural belonging in Canada amid rising populist attitudes toward immigrants, greater sexual equality on campus, the effects of neoliberalism on democracy and the responses to anti-science movements.
