Boundless citizenship means understanding that the problems we face are interconnected, and we must work together to find common solutions.By comparing two different cases, one in Nigeria, and one in Manitoba,  we take a deep dive into the obstacles that affect communities within developing and developed countries and how we can take action to overcome them. This session shows you how you can take tangible actions and achieve lasting impact.

Une citoyenneté sans limites signifie que l'on comprend qu'il existe une interconnectivité entre les problèmes auxquels nous faisons face et qu'il nous faut trouver des solutions ensemble. Par l'étude comparative de deux cas, l'un en Nigeria et l'autre au nord-ouest de le Manitoba nous examinerons en profondeur les obstacles auxquels les communautés des pays développés ou en développement se heurtent et la façon de les surmonter. Cette séance vous montrera que vous êtes en mesure d'agir concrètement et d'avoir une influence durable.
