World Youth Manifesto Project, a Global Classroom Initiative


Students and teachers at Prince of Wales Collegiate in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador invite students from other provinces and countries to express their views on various global issues by participating in The World Youth Manifesto Project, a Global Classroom Initiative sponsored by the Canadian International Development Agency.

We will publish students' commentaries, essays, stories, poems, songs, photographs and artwork based on the six themes emphasized by the young people from 175 countries who expressed their expectations for the future at UNESCO's World Parliament of Children in Paris during October of 1999.

These themes include Peace and Nonviolence, Education, the Environment, Economic and Human Development, Solidarity and Intercultural Dialogue. We encourage contributions in either official language and would appreciate any feedback people submit to our Comments page.
