Every student in every classroom across the country has a story to share.
Enhancing Indigenous Education Through Co-Creation, a national initiative between April and September 2016 was designed to ensure that all voices would be heard in addressing the challenges facing Indigenous students while building on their successes. In order to achieve this, The Rideau Hall Foundation convened two national gatherings in May and June 2106, partnered with local First Nations as hosts, one gathering focused on youth, under 20 years of age and a second for national Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders and organizations with a focus on education and youth issues.
Developed, designed and delivered by the Indigenous owned Three Things Consulting, the two gatherings had powerful outcomes for youth and adults. The Youth Wisdom Carriers used a model of discovery and sharing to learn about and talk on issues critical to their education. Using a traditional consensus model, these youth leaders authored a Declaration and a set of recommendations that they believe will help improve education outcomes for all Indigenous students.
Following the Gathering of Youth Wisdom the Co-Creators Gathering brought together youth and adults who worked both in small and large groups holding discussions examining the recommendations of the youth, and identified where there were some initiatives in place to support the recommendations, what more needed to happen and where there was opportunity for collaboration and co-creation to continue.
There are continued partnerships and co-creation continues between the relationships developed through these important gatherings.
This is their collective story.
