At this week’s Community Meeting<https://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/Community+workshops> ( Sep 12, 2018 ) Neil Wilson will be coming in to talk about The Republic of Childhood: Learning from the Future
Neil Wilson is the Founder of the Ottawa International Writers Festival<https://writersfestival.org/> He has been working with the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) on a number of literacy initiatives for the past 20 years working with community leaders and educators on discoversing and delivering exciting child centred initiatives that empower kids and young learners.
The Republic of Childhood was launched in the Fall of 2017 and is inspired by the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Republic is partnering with the Ottawa Public Library and a number of social housing neighbourhoods as well as the OCDSB.
