What is Explore MTL connect?
Explore MTL connect is a free online program for young people between 18 and 35 years old from developing countries interested in sharing their skills and consolidating their knowledge in digital transformation.
The program is even more relevant this year as the main theme of the 2023 edition is Collective Intelligence. Montreal Digital Spring aims to promote an inclusive society and emphasize the importance of ensuring that people from all backgrounds, especially young people, can participate in international and large-scale forums like MTL connect.
Explore MTL connect is also an opportunity for young people from different developing countries to connect with the actors of the Quebec ecosystem. In 2022, more than 2,300 youth from 58 countries participated in the program.
