In order to reinforce the capacity of Canadian Small and Medium Organizations (SMOs) and educators, Spur Change seeks to convene annually 50 representatives of SMOs as well as 50 educators from coast-to-coast-to-coast to learn from experts, and share expertise, approaches and good practices for inclusive, gender transformative, sustainable development; to identify and form partnerships; and strengthen the sector’s collective work to more effectively engage all Canadians as global citizens.
