Learning for a Sustainable Future & The RBC Foundation invite you to participate in the
Our Canada Project Youth Leadership Forums
Empowering Students to Change the World!
The Our Canada Project is a call to action, engaging youth in envisioning a more sustainable Canada and the actions they are taking to achieve their vision. At the Youth Leadership Forum students will be inspired to take action through keynotes and workshops delivered by local youth who are making change in their communities. They will leave empowered with innovative ideas, skills, and confidence to undertake their own action projects.
At their own workshop, educators will learn to support student action projects while meeting curriculum requirements using transformative learning.
