Today is International Youth Day.
“Youth Engagement for Global Action” highlights the ways young people get stuff done at the local, national and global levels!
Kids have some pretty AMAZING ideas!
Their voice is valuable!
And….let’s face it – MOST of the challenges we are facing today will end up in THEIR laps!
The aim of IYD 2020 is to shed light on the need to enable the engagement of youth by making local, national and global institutions more inclusive for the purpose of strengthening their capacity (and relevance) to achieve global action.https://www.un.org/development/desa/youth/iyd2020.html
We can help!
By telling kids BETTER stories about engineering, we help them see just what’s possible.
We can LISTEN.
We can SUPPORT their views.
We can help them TURN IDEAS INTO REALITY!
It’s what engineers do.
We are just a few weeks away from kicking off the 2020-2021 program year for the Engineer-in-Residence program.
When TWO HUNDRED engineers (that’s right!) will become engineering ambassadors to TWO HUNDRED classroom (there’s that number again!) across Ontario.
