If you’ve been itching to travel, but you’re looking for an experience that goes beyond backpacking, head to the Go Global Expo this weekend at the Westin Harbour Castle Conference Centre. The expo features opportunities to work, volunteer, and study abroad. Keynote speaker Sol Guy, who is K’naan’s manager and was named an Emerging Explorer by National Geographic, will talk about leveraging his projects in the entertainment business for social change. A travel photography exhibition is sure to inspire wanderlust, and hourly information seminars will give you an in-depth look at projects you might be interested in.

The exhibition is free, but if you register, you get a free one-year subscription to event producer Verge Magazine.
