ACT 4 Global Change offers resources for youth and educators who want to learn more about global issues. Our Global Citizenship workshop is designed by teachers to be low-prep and high-impact, engaging high school students in action-oriented examination of global issues. Explicitly linked to Atlantic Canada’s curriculum outcomes and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, the workshop exposes students to the urgency of social and environmental challenges, and showcases solutions that are happening right here in Atlantic Canada.
