This year, thanks to the support of Canadian Heritage through its program, « Youth take charge », the program « OPEN UP TO THE WORLD » adds a new component. All year round, in addition to financing youth projects in schools and accompany them through their development process, workshops and conferences as well as extracurricular activities will be offered by our new educational coordinator in both official languages. These workshops, which mainly aim to sensibilize the young Quebecers to a better social integration, also addresses the initial themes of the program although these following angles are prioritized:
- History and heritage;
- Civic engagement and youth service;
- Economic activities; and
- Arts and culture
Inspired by the 2002 Millennium goals and 2016 sustainable development goals (OMD and ODD), the projects topics supported by “OPEN UP TO THE WORLD” allow to reflect on these following concerns:
- Children’s games in the world
- Basic education in the world
- Fair trade
- Health, nutrition and sanitary crisis
- Religions around the world, differences and similarities
- Children’s condition (wars, exploitation, etc.)
- Gender equality (girls and women’s condition)
- Human rights
- Democracy, political systems
- Environment issues
- Globalization, distribution of wealth, social classes, segregation, power
- Poverty here, close to your neighborhood
- Prejudices, tabous and stereotypes
We believe that the problems related to multicultural cohabitation are fed by the ignorance and misunderstanding of the rest of the world. Therefore, we are convinced that it is by raising awareness, openness and education to other citizens of the world that the young generations will be led to global respect and cooperation. So, joining the inherent philosophy of JEUNES-PROJET Foundation , the projects developed by the very young people remain, for us, the base of this openness to the world and the nurturing of awareness towards peace, also allowing oneself as belonging to Canadian society.
