Canadian Campus Experience Online

With overseas travel curtailed and school excursions cancelled, students have limited opportunities to develop global citizenship. The online Canadian Campus Experience allows Japanese high school students to engage in discussions, games and exercises in English with Canadian university and high school students. Discussion topics are developed from the many aspects of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as well as lighter subjects like popular culture and music. Canadian university students hosting online sessions have participated in Vancouver Family Homestays Campus Experience programs at the University of British Columbia and elsewhere in Vancouver. Participating Canadian high school students attend schools that have hosted visiting Japanese schools by VFH arrangement.

The one hour Campus Experience includes a virtual tour of the University of British Columbia campus. The UBC student buddy leading the session will lead a conversation covering a variety of topics. Topics can include the ones shown here or they can be customized to suit.

The two session Campus Experience allows for more discussion topics than in a single session. Students can be assigned material to prepare them for the second session making it possible to delve deeper into subjects.

With additional sessions groups can delve into Sustainable Development Goal topics, making for deeper and more rewarding discussions.

SDG Logo

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015,
provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet,
now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and
developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and
other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and
education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling
climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
