Panel Title: Educating for a better world....one systems citizen at time

'Educating for a better world....one systems citizen at time'
Anita Abraham (University of Waterloo)

This workshop will be an interactive session where we take you through activities and games that will teach some of the concepts that are critical to developing systems citizens. Systems citizens are those who are open to understanding more about the relationships and systems that exist in the world, and how to use them to create positive social change. The teaching methodology and curriculum that will be covered in this workshop has emerged out of a local program for young people in Kitchener-Waterloo called Studio Impact and an international program in Trinidad and Tobago called Agents of Change. The intention of this workshop is to share what has been learned thus far and to continue to have the dialogue so we can learn from each other. If you are interested in novel ways of education, social innovation, community justice, and a more resilient world - this is the workshop for you!
