BCCIC’s youth campaign launched for International Development Week
International Development Week, Feb. 5 -11, is a CIDA-led initiative held annually for over 20 years, which celebrates Canadians’ involvement in international development and cooperation.
As part of this initiative, the BC Council for International Cooperation (BCCIC) has created an online youth campaign to celebrate youth groups/classrooms based in BC that are making a difference in the world by engaging in global issues, particularly those that are empowering women and girls. BCCIC selected three groups – from North Vancouver, West Kelowna, and Port Alberni – to highlight the inspiring work they are doing.
Visit the BCCIC website to watch a video about their experiences and to read about how they are creating change, as well as to get more information on how to get involved in international development.
