small Changes, BIG Impact

University of Regina, SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA

Program Overview

“Small Changes, Big Impact” is a solution based and experience oriented learning program to address sustainability topics from a Saskatchewan perspective. It is led by the University of Regina, in partnership with the University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific (UMAP), the Ministry of Advanced Education, Government of Saskatchewan, as well as other post-secondary institutions and agencies within the Province of Saskatchewan.

The program design adopts blended delivery modalities to create a unique learning environment, students will have two components to choose from:

  1. Virtual Only
  • Asynchronous and synchronous sessions;
  • Ignite knowledge exploration and discussion with built-in topics and tailored themes;
  • Focus on the understanding of sustainability, sustainable development and related concepts and the practices and interconnections of human and environmental systems.

By the end of the virtual sessions, students will gain the fundamental knowledge of the SDG concepts. Students who are continuing with the in-person component are expected to identify one area or project that they would like to further explore during their in-person visit to Saskatchewan.

  1. Blended (Virtual and In Person)
  • Immerse yourself in the land of living skies for a hands-on learning experience as true global citizens and begin the path to becoming a future Saskatchewan Student Ambassador;
  • Gain knowledge about what Saskatchewan has to offer in terms of resources, development and how sustainability is being woven into local communities;
  • Take part in professional discussions and visits with focus on hands-on practices and efforts in Saskatchewan to reflect the impact that small changes can make at a higher level.

The program concludes with a presentation of select student reflections or project reports to showcase how individual efforts and changes contribute to a community’s sustainable development.
