 Expedition Africa Legacy – On the Road Again!

Building on the success of Small World Big Picture (SWBP) Expedition Africa project, Algonquin College is committed to help educate the Canadian youth about Africa by continuing our Expedition Africa journey….straight into schools across Ontario. Through a video and live presentation by Ben Webster, our goal is to reach a broader audience and help create a stronger social awareness of the strengths and weakness facing the continent of Africa through our “Impact” campaign.

Why A Presentation About Africa?

Globalization is changing the way we look at our world, making our world smaller than it used to be. Expedition Africa brings the reality of Africa to the Canadian students, allowing them to understand how what happens in Africa affects us right here in Canada.

Africa is emerging as a global hot spot and our future generation, our future leaders, need to grasp the reality of Africa. They need to be socially aware of what takes place in other parts of the world; Canadian students need to be informed about Africa.
