This session will provide a step-by-step guide to assist youth in planning an environmental action project. CAWST has been supporting educators and youth to take meaningful action on local and global water issues for 12 years; by providing a planning framework and support during this process, linking teams to local industry experts, and providing $500 grants to teams to implement their project. Students become engaged in global water issues through youth stories of community development from Zambia and Nepal. In addition, local water organizations provide youth with regionally-relevant expertise and access to tools that are meaningful to their own community. Hear from teachers and former Youth Wavemakers on the impact that action-based learning can have on a student’s sense of self-efficacy, environmental awareness and civic responsibility and explore ways to can integrate this program into your classroom or extracurricular program. This session will primarily focus on building a project through the CAWST CTF free online course (Career and Technology Foundations), however can easily be adapted by other subject teachers. CAWST is a Calgary-based non-profit that works in over 70 developing countries delivering capacity-building services to organizations implementing water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) projects. CAWST is unique in that it is focused on providing training and support to local people so they have the knowledge and skills to implement their own WASH projects. Last school year, Wavemakers teams saved over 120,000 litres of water and reached over 14,000 community members with their action projects.
