Youth and Sustainable Development
Landmark 29 (Social Justice)
We hosted a workshop engaging students in a Grade 11 class studying at Virtual High School during their morning session. Topics we covered during the workshop include the following: an overview of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Leaving No One Behind (LNOB) Principle, and the importance of youths in the SDGs. We concluded our workshop with case studies and examples illustrating youths taking action to address some of the most urgent issues in PTBO and across Canada. Students also participated in a brief poetry and songwriting session during the workshop expressing their thoughts on the SDGs and issues affecting them and their communities.
