Supporting youth mobilization and education
We at USC Canada are inspired by the increasing number of young people getting together to grow gardens, prepare food and learn what they can do to encourage greater food security at home and abroad. In recognition of the special contribution these growing citizens are making to our movement and mission, USC Canada is developing new programming focused on youth of all ages.
University and college
USC Canada is proud to connect with participants of the Campus Food Systems Project, involving 12 campuses across the country, to support their work towards sustainable food practices.
We also encourage interested student groups to participate in their local Run for Biodiversity event or to organize their own. For example, Ottawa’s Algonquin College mobilized a team of 42 runners and walkers for the 2014 Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend.
In the meantime, if you are a high school student or teacher interested in organizing an activity on the theme of food or seed biodiversity, check out our resources for educators for some ideas. Our film kit provides you with a list of short and full-length films that may be of interest to you.
