Workshops

10:30-12:00

Be the Change: Participatory Democracy Through Action Civics

Join youth and adults from the Vermont Youth Lobby to learn how a shift in thinking about civics education and the inclusion of a personalized civic action project led to the rise of a new youth movement called the Vermont Youth Lobby. Over the past several years, this grassroots organization of students, teachers, and community members has brought together over three thousand students from dozens of schools across Vermont to meet with their lawmakers and discuss issues that were important to them.  We will share our story of how we are working locally to address global issues, share video footage from past events and respond to any questions you have about starting a youth lobby chapter in your school.

12:00-12:45

Digging Deeper Discussion Group

What common threads connect the Global Citizenship: Engage presentations and how is it that the work of domestic organizations and individuals fits into a global citizenship framework? Join in a facilitated discussion with fellow youth and adult conference participants to explore conference content and develop a working definition for global citizenship.

1:30-3:00

Taking Action for People & the Planet: Youth Voice in Cultivating Pathways to Sustainability

Join youth and adult facilitators from Vermont to learn how they are connecting with youth from Mississippi and Nepal on a global mission to address challenges including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. Participants will engage in an activity using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's), to identify what they are most passionate about and how to begin taking action.
