Here is a powerful opportunity for students in social studies classrooms across Ontario to help shape Canada’s future, called The Next 150 / Les Prochaines 150 Années. Starting this September 2017, students can join thousands of students from diverse communities across the country in a national Next 150 / Les Prochaines 150 Années discussion online on WorldVuze to share their vision for the Canada young people want in the next 150 years and as a result create a blueprint to help them and future generations get us there.

The 5 Next 150 Discussion Topics are:

  • Responsible Citizenship
  • Canadian Identities
  • Rethinking Our Past
  • Sustainable Future
  • Canada’s Leadership in the World

To join, your students can jump into the national and bilingual The Next 150 / Les Prochaines 150 Années discussion online on WorldVuze, anytime between September to November 2017, by sharing their perspectives on one or all 5 curriculum-relevant Next 150 themes – Responsible Citizenship, Canadian Identities, Rethinking Our Past, Sustainable Future, and Canada’s Leadership in the World.
