Landmark 29 (Social Justice)
We hosted a workshop on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for two classes at the Virtual St. Thomas School during the Environmental Symposium event hosted by PVNCCDSB and KPRDSB. Students were introduced to topics such as the 17 SDGs and localization of the SDGs. We emphasized the principles of Leaving No One Behind and the importance of the livelihood of all people as well as issues involving fair and just systems. In addition, we took a closer look at case studies on the localization of the SDGs and how plans of action can meet the needs of local communities so that they can better support communities, households, and individuals, particularly those who are at risk of falling behind. Students were encouraged to create their own social media posts about the SDGs and issues they are passionate about in their communities.
