Today we are releasing one of our newest resources created by Amy Amber Canning, a talented and passionate intern at dHL. Amy’s internship focused on aligning each sustainable development goal with the Canadian curriculum by province. We hope this new resources will help you plan for engaging lessons that focus on sustainable development from K-12.

Family Transition Place

GOAL 3: Good Health and Well Being; GOAL 5: Gender Equality

Family Transition Place is a women’s shelter in Orangeville, ON. They provide shelter and support to women and children who have left unhealthy relationships and educational programs. Our Youth Education Programs are designed to teach kids what healthy relationships are all about and to help eliminate violence in our communities. The curriculum for each program (offered from Grades 5 through 12) meet the Ontario Ministry of Education guidelines, are interactive, and include various forms of media to address all learning styles and engage students’ cognitive, behavioural and emotional learning processes. Our programs also cover social and emotional learning strategies including the Healthy School framework, the Equity and Inclusive Education strategy, and the Safe School Strategy.

GOAL 4: Quality Education; GOAL: 12 Responsible Consumption

Workshops designed to help parents and educators become familiar with the risks associated with children’s unmoderated use of digital media ( whether web sites, video games, and apps or social media applications like Instagram and SnapChat).  From privacy, to safety, to unhealthy addiction and ADD, the dangers are as important as the opportunities these new media offer.

Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation; Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy; Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities; Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production; Goal 13: Climate Action; Goal 14: Life Below Water; Goal 15: Life On Land

Canada’s top young environmentalists have incredible stories to tell you and your community.

Alienor Rougeot, Human and Environmental Activist

GOAL 13: Climate Action

As a human and environmental activist for 10 years, I hope to share my knowledge, experience and passion with regards to climate change, the importance of climate justice and the interconnection of climate change with other issues such as women and minority rights, poverty, homelessness, health, food sovereignty. I can speak about facts on climate change and the broader ecological crisis happening right now (historical perspective, psycho-cultural and economic causes) + my role as an activist.

Scientists in Schools

GOAL 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth; GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

The future of Canada depends on the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. We engage children in hands-on classroom and community STEM workshops, encouraging them to question, investigate and discover science in the world around them. Sparking a long-lasting interest in STEM and the environment, inspiring children to think differently about a future STEM career path and challenging them to succeed are just a few of the things we accomplish in every workshop. We want children to believe they can achieve things they never thought were possible, until they had Scientists in School. They offer hands on workshops to students in grades K – 8.
