My Master’s Thesis

Canada's Youth Summit Team - October 2001 

 

Canada's Youth Summit Team - October 2001

 

For anyone who spent time writing a master’s thesis, you will understand my feelings of joy.  I recently published an excerpt of my thesis in a book called: Young people, education, and sustainable development – Exploring principles, perspectives, and praxis.

In 2003, I wrote my master’s thesis on Canada’s Youth Summit Team.  This was a select group of diverse, geographically representative youth helping Canada’s government and young people prepare for the World Summit on Sustainable Development (2002).

After two years of volunteering on the project with the United Nation’s Association in Canada and then researching and writing a thesis about the experience, I am pleased that others might share and learn from my reflections.  

The book will be launched at the forthcoming 12th General Conference of the Association of African Universities (AAU) in Abuja, Nigeria from May 4 – 9, 2009 and the 5th World Congress on Environmental Education (WEEC 5) from May 10-14, 2009 in Montreal, Canada.
