Global Citizen Week is coming up Feb 16th - March 3rd, 2013 in Kelowna. This is a great opportunity to find out about some of our local organizations who help eradicate poverty in the world. And it turns out this is also a great time to introduce your child to the responsibilities of being a Global Citizen.
I knew there were some great adult focused events like the Speaker Series with Taylor Conroy on Feb 20th or the Global Music Fest on Mar 1 & 2 (March 3rd Global Music Fest is open to the family!). And on Feb 28th find out how local students would help the world at the Millennium Development Challenge.
But did you know about all the great events geared for children? Give them a taste of some of the different types of ethnic foods at Taste of Home on Feb 23rd. Or expose your children to art, at An Artist's Eye on the World on Mar 2nd. Show them how people live in some of the villages around the world in a simulated slum at the Global Children's Villages on Feb 16th. There is even a Global School House being offered to Grade 6 students, so that they can experience going to school in a third world country.
Our world is getting smaller every day, help your child have a greater awareness of the challenges children face around the world and how they can get involved!
