International Development Week 2010


February 6-13 is International Development Week (IDW) in Canada. IDW is an initiative of CIDA which is implemented by the various councils for international cooperation around Canada.

The motto for this year's IDW is "Be Yourself, Be Bold, Be the Change!" As part of this, councils around Canada are profiling youth, ages 15-30, who are doing their part to be active global citizens.

In British Columbia, the BC Council for International Cooperation has profiled eight youth on their website.

To learn about events that are taking place around the province, visit CIDA's website.

Katherine Douglas is one of the individuals who is being profiled for IDW. At only 17, she has had some outstanding accomplishments.
