education for global citizenship

conferences and workshops

Thanks to the expertise it has acquired in the field through its international projects, CCI offers age-appropriate conferences and workshops on economic inequality, social justice, climate justice, armed conflict and human rights, and gender equality and women’s rights.

Each activity, whatever the theme, is a gateway to addressing issues of children’s rights, human dignity, poverty, gender equality and the importance of access to education. These activities also provide participants with avenues to develop their power of action, thus becoming agents of change capable of participating in the creation of a fairer, more equitable and more sustainable world.

A full catalog of existing workshops is available here, but the CCI team continues to innovate by offering the possibility of tailoring workshops to the needs of participants.


Because involvement and commitment always start with awareness-raising, CCI hosts interactive kiosks in schools of all levels every year. 

Thanks to a dynamic approach based on quizzes, games and other fun educational tools, young people are made aware of child labor issues, international solidarity issues and CCI projects.

Contact us to organize a kiosk at your school!

international development week

Funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC), International Development Week (IDW) takes place every year during the first full week of February. Launched in 1991, its aim is to highlight the international development activities of the Canadian community.

In Quebec, the Association québécoise des organismes de coopération internationale (AQOCI) and its 67 members in 13 regions of the province organize this awareness-raising week for Quebecers. Save the Children International, as a member of AQOCI, is marking the week by organizing activities in the Montérégie region, where its head office is located.

IDW offers Canadians an excellent opportunity to learn more about the role played by the public in international development, to learn more about the various global issues and to discover the means available to them to become true citizens of the world, by taking an active part in international development.
