Description: The use of children as soldiers has been universally condemned as abhorrent and unacceptable. Yet, over the last ten years, hundreds of thousands of children have fought and died in conflicts around the world. This video-conference will connect students with former child soldiers in what promises to be a profoundly moving and inspiring event. We will learn about the complexities of the situations in which children become caught up in conflict and what the most appropriate and impactful response a student might take in response to this. In this conference, students will research organizations doing work with child soldiers and examine critically the structures and policies in place by these organizations to address this critical human rights issue.
Description: Bullying and cyberbullying are pervasive problems in schools and communities across Canada. Stories of youth unable to cope with bullying in schools and online are increasingly common. In response, many initiatives across Canada have been developed to help youth deal with these important issues. How can we further empower students to prevent and respond to bullying & cyberbullying? This deep learning videoconference will enable students to engage in a national discussion that will explore how students can prevent and respond to bullying & cyberbullying. This live national conversation will be led by subject matter experts, and will expose students to other perspectives and regions in Canada by connecting six interactive classrooms from across the country. By the end of the learning experience, students will have learned about the types and consequences of bullying & cyberbullying, the importance of healthy relationships, steps to take when dealing with bullying & cyberbullying and actions youth can take to help prevent bullying & cyberbullying. Registration for interactive spaces for this event is closed. However, registration for observing classes can be done through the link below. Observing classes can visit our Livestream webpage during the time of the event to watch live!
Time: 24:00 PM-13:30 PM
