Landmark 29 (Social Justice)
We hosted a virtue workshop (Workshops 3 and 4 combined) to introduce students to the localization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Youths as Agents of Change in the Agenda 2030 at the Lakefield District Public School (same class, but different workshops). The students explored topics including how localization work and why it is important, as well as how youths can get involved and make positive change in their communities. We covered topics including poverty, climate change, and access to clean water and engaged students in discussions on how and why these issues still persist. We also included an interesting case study exploring Ontario Youth Climate Case where 7 young climate leaders come together and launched a lawsuit against the Ontario government for climate inaction.
