Welcome to our 2019 Grade 10 Retreat. Our theme is: In Solidarity We Walk. Today, it’s time to act! Never have so many people fled war, persecution, natural disasters, extreme poverty, and development megaprojects. In solidarity with the 68.5 million children, women, and men who have been forced to flee their homes, “Development and Peace” challenges us to help collectively walk 40,075 kilometers, the equivalent of the Earth’s circumference. Every step you take will send a strong message to the Canadian government that it must do more to end forced migration around the world.
