As Canada celebrates a milestone year, we'd like to create space for the "wishes and wisdoms" of each child to be recognized and honoured as they design the vision they have for the future of this country.
The calmversation model for learning is based on the peaceful exchange of thoughts and ideas which creates space for every voice to be heard, respected and valued. We believe each child carries within them a unique set of wishes that guide their actions.
By creating points of observation, reflection and connection throughout Canada's vast landscapes, we can help educators, parents and communities celebrate the wisdom of humanity through calmversation…
The future belongs to children and creates opportunities for their wishes and wisdoms to be heard and valued in celebration of Canada’s 150th. Creativity, compassion and thoughtful reflections provide the foundation for our initiative. We hope to empower children of all ages to become leaders, innovators and thoughtful communicators.
The desire to extend meaningful learning and positive interactions for humans of all ages is at the heart of our mission.
