Our Canada Project
Start date: 1 October, 2012
End date: On-going
Our Canada Project (OCP) was the brain child of a diverse group of 22 youth from across Canada. These youth were brought together for 48 hours to figure out how to inspire all youth from every area in Canada to be more responsible citizens. The answer: give youth a chance to share their voice and they will take action. And so, the Our Canada Project was born.
OUR CANADA PROJECT is an interactive map where students can share their vision for a sustainable Canada and the actions that they will take, or have taken, to bring Canada closer to this vision. To celebrate Canada's 150th, Our Canada Project promotes youth action, engagement and impact in sustainability.
Nature of the Project Reach
Our Canada Project is an online platform which asks visitors to share their identity and their vision for a better Canada, and the actions that they are taking, or have taken to make their vision come true. This project has been marketed to teachers through summer/fall workshops engaging over 250 educators across Canada through the Ambassador program. This program will maximize outreach to youth across Canada.
We hope you will use this space to share with all Canadians the work you are doing, big or small, individually or collectively, to make Canada a better place. In 2017 - Canada will celebrate our 150th anniversary. What’s your vision for a better Canada? What are you doing to make it come true? Share your story today.
Maximize outreach to youth and educators.
