Why "change education"?
Tammy Murphy, the First Lady of New Jersey, called for more education around climate change to "help create a generation of climate-literate policymakers, data analysts, entrepreneurs, urban planners, researchers, anthropologists, journalists, economists, artists and more."
This series seeks to change education by creating a generation literate in the history and contributions of the ethnic and cultural diaspora in Canada.
CapU is committed to creating inclusive spaces that value everyone's rights, dignity and labour. Join us during the year for learning, dialogue and inspiration as we work together for a more equitable future.
We can’t wait to see you at these upcoming events.
