The Development Studies Club is a club on campus at the University Calgary interested in making social change possible. We are a group of active and involved students working towards a better future for our planet. We have many events through out the year raising awareness about many social justice topics targeted not only at students but also towards the general community. Moreover, we give policy advice to the University.
Mission Statement: Think globally and act locally.
To carry out this mission effectively, our objectives are:
- Raise awareness in our community.
- To collaborate with local actors and engage in sustainable activities.
- Organize forum on important international development issues.
For other net participants we can offer overnight facilities. Further we can deliver a lecture, procure expert information and establish new contacts in the field of our work. Other supporting possibilities: We are always looking for other social justice groups to work with.
