Calgary French and International School – A Discussion of Environmental Issues

We hosted a Zoom discussion about environmentalism with a goal of trying to help raise awareness on how much our environments have changed in the past few years. The changes discussed could be a negative or positive. We also wanted to discuss possible short-term as well as long-term solutions to improve our environments around the world. We talked with students from India, the United States, Canada and Colombia about the differences in our environments from one country to the next and we talked about how contact with nature shaped our lives. We addressed what we could change in our personal life that could have an effect on nature and the environment surrounding us in a positive way, we thought and spoke about how our actions and habits influence how animals live and survive.

It is truly awe – inspiring, the power of art, to move people, to bring people together – like it has in the fiesta.
