As the exclusive post-secondary partner
of We Day Vancouver, Capilano University will celebrate on campus by holding Justice High, a series of workshops for
high school students that are designed to educate and inspire youth to become
changemakers in their communities.
Organized by Capilano U Global
Stewardship students and a group of international student leaders, the event
includes inspiring speakers and interactive workshops by organizations such as Oxfam,
Amnesty International, Check Your Head, and Stratosphere. Topics include: Climate
Justice; Behind the Brands - A look into local farming and food sources; and
careers in the international development sector. Students will also have the
opportunity to sit in on university classes from a variety of faculties, tour
the university, and network with a dozen NGOs who will set up booths at Cap.
They can even join Cap students and watch a live
stream of We Day Vancouver!
Capilano University wants youth
to know that the energy and great work of We Day doesn’t have to end at high
school graduation. At Capilano U, the culture of changemaking is fostered and
built into many of our programs and initiatives, empowering students to reach
their fullest potential as agents of change and lifelong, global citizens,
while completing a degree at Capilano.
More than 65 students from five schools will be participating in this invitation-only event. Participants
should check in outside the CSU lounge (LB195) on the main floor of the Library
building at 8:45 a.m.
