Landmark 29 (Social Justice)
In this workshop, we engaged students from a Grade 9 Geography class at Adam Scott CVI (same class but different workshop) in topics surrounding the localization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and why youth engagement is so important in propelling the SDGs forward. We talked about the different ways students bring positive social change in their community by raising awareness of the SDGs and taking part in different initiatives and programs that are ongoing. Moreover, we discussed the localization of the SDGs in Peterborough and the 5 priority action areas identified by a community forum in 2019 addressing no poverty, quality education, climate change, indigenous leadership, clean water and sanitation.
