The CFYS and the CRD-Community Health Network co-hosted the Flourishing Children and Youth Forum in December 2019. The free, one-day community research forum brought leaders from local community organizations, health authorities, school districts, non-profit organizations, and municipal and provincial governments together to discuss the health and well-being of children and youth.

UVic Ideafest Talk: "E-Children and @Youth: The Promise and Perils of Electronic Media"

Join CFYS Fellows, the CFYS Director, and other UVic researchers for a discussion about how electronic media are changing childhood, from cyberbullying to supporting student learning. As electronic media become increasingly omnipresent, users are getting younger and younger. Apps targeting tots, smartphone use among middle schoolers and therapeutic uses of technology are just a few recent areas of study for UVic researchers.
