Summary of Workshops:

1.  Youth Climate Justice: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Action (Free for the first 20 workshop bookings!)

According to the United Nations, “the impacts of climate change will not be borne equally or fairly, between rich and poor, women and men, and older and younger generations.” The term “climate justice” recognizes the impacts of climate change can exacerbate existing inequitable social, economic and health conditions and adversely affect vulnerable populations. This workshop explores accessible entry points for youth to imagine and participate in the climate justice movement and local climate actions that will lead to the creation of a more just and sustainable society.  


2. Introduction to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and Leaving No One behind


The 2030 Agenda sets the vision for global action towards achieving a more sustainable future for people and the planet. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are balanced across three pillars of sustainable development (economic, social and environment) with a focus on ensuring that the most vulnerable and marginalized groups in the population are not left behind. This webinar aims to introduce students to the history of SDGs, the current progress of the goals and targets as well as an overview of the 2030 Agenda through global, national and local lenses, taking into account of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the progress of the SDGs. 


3.  The 2030 Agenda: Youth as Agents of Change from Global to Local Action


Young people around the world play a critical role in shaping the 2030 Agenda and achieving SDGs. Around the world, young people are calling for peace, justice, inclusion, gender equality and human rights. They have the power to determine the future and create a pathway to a world where balance and equity can be found and where no one is to be left behind. This webinar focuses on the progress young people have made across Canada combating some of the world's biggest challenges and inspiring change and creating opportunities for local action.


4. Youth Climate Action Through the Lens of United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP)


The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) affirms the rights of Indigenous Peoples across the world. Protecting the rights of Indigenous communities holds the key to combating climate change. This workshop provides opportunities for students to learn more about the issues relevant to UNDRIP and participate in the UNDRIP movement that will build a future that is environmentally sustainable and socially just for all.




"These (youth leadership) workshops helped support our student government at a crucial time as they undertook a significant reorganization of their structure. The workshops helped them define their objectives, develop strategies for inclusion, and nurture skills in interpersonal communication and public speaking. These workshops have our strongest recommendation.

Peter Mullins, Teacher - Kenner CVI

"Rachelia and her team of volunteers at KWIC are always enthusiastic, and respectful during workshops. I really enjoyed the strength based approach KWIC uses to describe youths' place in their community. The youth really appreciated the difference in approach from a traditional classroom. The approach peaked their interest and the students felt comfortable to share. 

I would recommend [their workshops to] anyone working with youth, especially those who are working together to achieve a goal. Student run councils, civics classes, especially could benefit from the leadership-style activities, and community mapping. I would really recommend anyone who works with youth in schools or outside schools to reach out to KWIC, they really worked with us to make sure it was a meaningful experience to our participants!"
