I-Think Remembrance Day Expansion
High engagement and interest from students, schools and community members allowed us to launch the 2023 Expansion of the Remembrance Day Challenge Kit.
New funding is focusing on designing meaningful student resources to create more opportunities for students to hear from veterans, historians and those connected to war, conflict and peace from of diverse backgrounds and experiences. Ongoing conversations with Veteran Affairs Canada are informing and growing the impact of this challenge.
Our 2023 expansion included a Live Speaker Series, which allowed students to learn more from those connected to war and also have an opportunity to ask questions. Prior to the Live Speaker Series we had videos from the speakers to introduce them and their perspectives.
