    Trickster Theatre - Celebrating Canada's 150th in Alberta 

    Leading up to next Canada Day on July 1st, 2017, Trickster Theater will be holding week-long residencies in over 30 Alberta schools and communities throughout the course of the year. These residencies are aimed at exploring what Canada means to the schools and communities involved.

    Click here for more details on the Canada 150 project.

     

    Trickster artists work with students in each school throughout the course of the week to create, develop, and perform full theatre productions that are open for the community to see. This has been a very succesful method of engaging students, and indeed their families, in active learning as well giving the students a platform to have a voice through the art of theatre.

     

    Trickster aims to bring about a broader understanding of theatre, while helping communities explore this great country and all it has to offer!

    Doctors Without Borders - Kids Go Global's Newest NGO Partner

    TestIt is with great excitement that we welcome Doctors Without Borders or MSF as a partner NGO with Kids Go Global.  MSF is a medical relief organization that has been operating for more than 40 years in over 70 countries, providing relief to those needing medical aid from catastrophies such as natural disasters, armed conflicts and epidemics of disease and famine. The medical aid is given in high risk conditions often putting doctors at risk themselves.

     

    With this partnership MSF brings valuable resources to our website for students and teachers.  Find the link to their NGO page here and learn about the amazing work they do world wide to help those most in need of emergency medical care.

    Canada in Paris for Climate Conference

    In Paris, France from Nov. 30-Dec. 11,  leaders and representatives from more than 190 countries are gathering to discuss climate change at COP21.

     

    The United Nations conference is called COP21 because it is the 21st conference of the Parties (or all the countries wanting to take action on climate change).  The delegates are trying to come up with ways to keep global warming under 2 degrees celsius to avoid more extreme climate events in the future.  Countries in the developing world are particularly at risk of rising sea levels and extreme weather.

     

    Commitments from countries will come at a cost as they work to reduce their carbon emissions or perhaps face penalties, if they don't stay on goals agreed upon in Paris.

     

    Stay tuned to see what Canada will pledge to do at COP21.  Let's hope we keep our promise this time!


    McKenzie Towne School Fights Back Against Pollution

    Grade 4 students from McKenzie Towne School have been hard at work studying the many causes and effects of pollution on our planet. Through their explorations these students have created some amazing video presentations that range in topic from air and land pollution to conserving natural resources. Kids Go Global could not be more impressed with the work coming out of McKenzie Towne School and we are excited to see what they will be working on next. You can check out the students videos by clicking the links below.

    Fundraising Campaigns Underway

    Students are passionate about making change in the world. During the past month, many of our partner schools have taken on projects to help their local communities, raising funds to provide affordable housing, gathering supplies and toys for children at local homeless shelters, and organizing a tournament to raise funds to make sports programs affordable for all families. We're inspired by the vision and dedication of these students and are happy to profile their important work on Kids Go Global. Check out these fantastic projects below:
