BPCS STUDENTS ADVOCATE SUSTAINABILITY

Jess and Kim from the Town of Cambridge came to talk to students in Middle School about the Sustainability Strategic Plan as a part of the public consultation process.
Initially, students completed a survey where they were asked about their knowledge and feelings around the issue of sustainability. One question, in particular, stood out. Our students were asked how confident they were about speaking about solutions to sustainability issues in their community. It was clear a majority felt that they were not confident at all. When questioned more closely their responses indicated they were unsure of the process of how to communicate their opinions and also there was a feeling that because of their age, they may be unheard.

Students were also asked to identify their favourite spots and what actions they felt are needed to improve sustainability in these areas. This session saw the students opinions in a real and visible way with them mapping out the spaces (pictured).
While the students may have felt at the beginning of the session that their voice would go unheard, I don’t believe that was their thought at the end.
