Canada’s development of our oil sands resources is an important issue to all Canadians and will have a large impact on our global future. Now is the time for our youth to gain a deep understanding of this complex topic so that they can build a sustainable future for Canada. Oil Sands Education Dialogue is a framework for engaging students in collaboration and multi-stakeholder problem solving activities about controversial and complicated issues.
What are the effects of low oil prices on your everyday life? Students learn about this issue from a variety of perspectives, apply their critical thinking skills and propose actions to help Canada deal with this issue.
In this simulation of an hearing, students consider economic, environmental and social effects of an oil sands project and work towards a sustainable future.
