So you want to do development work but are concerned about adding the problem? Let’s get your gears moving as we unpack our privilege, address systemic and historical issues of (neo-)colonialism, and find responsible ways to create positive and sustainable  impact in the world. In this session, we explore these questions to work towards truly encompassing what it means to be a “Boundless Citizen”.

Vous souhaitez travailler dans le domaine du développement, mais craignez d'ajouter de l'huile sur le feu? Venez remuer vos méninges alors que nous examinerons nos privilèges, traiterons d'enjeux historiques et systémiques propres au (néo)colonialisme et trouverons des façons responsables d'avoir des retombées positives et durables sur le monde. Au cours de cette séance, nous explorerons ces questions afin d'en venir à définir ce que signifie vraiment être un « citoyen sans limites » et une « citoyenne sans limites ».
