At the beginning of May, the Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement (CPA) welcomed our newest member, Julia Coburn, cofounder of WorldVuze, to our Epp Peace Incubator program. WorldVuze is a free online platform where K-12 students worldwide can safely share and explore a diversity of perspectives on topics posted by classrooms, nonprofit organizations, or experts.

Last week, Julia shared with us a very exciting announcement: WorldVuze has officially launched their newest campaign, entitled Next 150 / Les Prochaines 150 Années, a cross-Canada discussion project. This new project provides opportunities for students to join thousands of their peers from diverse communities in a national discussion on their vision for Canada’s next 150 years. WorldVuze is providing a platform for young people to not only share their dreams, but to share a blueprint for how their generation can get us there.

For teachers who would like to take this discussion into their classrooms, there is curriculum and grade relevant classroom resources available online. Sign up now to receive The Next 150 classroom resources!

Visit the CPA’s website to learn more about WorldVuze and the seven other ventures that are part of our Peace Incubator program.
