Wonderful news! Inclusive Leader Mohammed Binaz is going on the road with the BC Council for International Co-operation as part of the United Nations “Sustainable Development Goals Boot Camp”
As soon as Binaz phoned me to share his news with the Inclusive Leadership Co-operative, I invited him to be sure to carve out the time in his very busy schedule to participate in our February 16 to 18, 2018 Cultivating Inclusive Leadership Weekend and facilitate a UNSDG workshop! We are hopeful that Binaz and other Youth Leaders will bring what they learn to the Inclusive Leadership Community so that we can all explore ways of making the UN Sustainable Development Goals real and actionable everywhere we live, learn, and lead in our own diverse communities.
Binaz was selected from many applicants all around BC to join with other strong, savvy and enthusiastic youth leaders to travel to Calgary to attend a national symposium where they will meet Canadian leaders engrossed in the latest discussions on the roadmap to 2030. From the time Binaz heads out to Kelowna, Nelson and Calgary until he returns on October 25 he will be involved in an on-going dialogue with a diverse group of motivated youth and mentors who are all as intent as he is on making the world a better place.
This road trip is just one part of an exciting new ten-month experiential education adventure focused on theory, practice and peer-to-peer learning about how
best to save our planet. This shared journey will engage all of these 18 to 24 year old youth in developing knowledge and skills for engaging children, youth and adults across Canada in making the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals real and actionable.
Binaz and all the other participants were selected because of their own amazing diversity, their positive attitude and their energy! Those of us who met Binaz at our June 2017 Inclusive Leadership Gathering understand why Binaz is so suited for this amazing United Nations Leadership Opportunity offered by the BC Council for International Co-operation.
