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.
Time: 24:00 PM-13:30 PM

Come be part of an interactive experience unlike any other with litter expert and CCO member, Sheila White. A game to test your littering and recycling knowledge, participatory music that entertains as it educates and Sheila’s presentation on what is being done to fight litter here and around the world will leave you more aware and inspired to help the goal of lowering the overall rate of littering. A presentation suitable for all ages. We will also explore a profile of litter, littering and litterers, and why we should care.
