On November 28th, 2019, more than 400 students from CSPGNO schools will come together for an event called UNIS pour l’environnement (United for the environment). In a spirit of celebration and sharing, young participants from de la Découverte, Pavillon-de-l’Avenir, Camille-Perron, Orée des Bois, Hanmer, Macdonald-Cartier, de la Rivière-des-Français and Villa Française des Jeunes will gather at Collège Boréal to discuss on how to make this world a better place.
The event will take place between 10 a.m. and noon and will be broadcasted live to allow for CSPGNO other schools to take part in this great initiative. Media representatives are invited to attend this activity.
Environment, ecology and health are at the heart of this year’s edition of Mini Unis. Students will have the chance to explore a little closer urban planning, climate change and the long-term effects of our daily actions.
Speakers, activists and artists will be present to share their life experiences. The following special guests will have the opportunity to talk to students in order to raise awareness on the issues related to the environment and inspire them to become agents of change at the local and international levels.
The event program features:
