Helping to create thriving communities and healthy environments
Global Citizenship in Fisheries and Aquaculture (2008)
This project informs and engages Canadian middle school students on fisheries and aquaculture in select developing countries, how these relate to everyday life in these countries, and how Canadian activities are contributing to Millennium Development Goals through these activities.
This project was initiated in 2008 by World Fisheries Trust and associates, with funding provided by the Government of Canada through the Canadian International Development Agency and their project "Global Classroom Initiative".
The first eight lesson plans developed focus on communities in Mozambique and include resource materials and appropriate links. They have an approach that engages students by highlighting personal lives with relevant reference to Canadians' own everyday lives or experiences.
