Make Change Happen - Roots & Shoots: Youth 4 Action Workshop
Have you ever wanted to take action on something you feel strongly about? Join us Wednesday, April 15 at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario for the Roots & Shoots: Youth 4 Action Workshop.
This day-long event (8:45 am to 3:00 pm) for students aged 13 to 18 will explore relevant topics and give you a road map to making change happen.
Workshop sessions will be facilitated by professors at Algonquin and local experts, and will cover topics ranging from climate change to endangered species, to consuming responsibly. There will also be sessions on how to effectively spread your message using tools such as photography, video and the internet.
Roots & Shoots is the global youth network of the Jane Goodall Institute, inspired by the work of world-famous primatologist, environmentalist and humanitarian, Dr. Jane Goodall.
If you can’t attend in person, join us online to hear Dr. Jane’s inspirational words via live webcast.
