Creating Positive Change
Landmark 29 (Social Justice)
We hosted a workshop on Youths As Agents of Change in the SDGs (Workshop 2) for three classes at Hillcrest Public School, Cobourg Collegiate Institute, and Adam Scott CVI. during the Environmental Symposium event hosted by PVNCCDSB and KPRDSB. Students were introduced to topics such as the 17 SDGs and the importance of youths in the SDGs. We highlighted the principles of sustainable development and how the 2030 Agenda applies to all of the world’s 1.2 billion young people. We engaged students in conversation on collective agreement and creating positive change in their communities. In addition, we took a closer look at examples illustrating youths across the globe and in Canada who are taking action against unfair and unjust systems. Students were encouraged to create their own social media posts exploring local actions and issues related to the 17 SDGs.
