What is the ReMobilize Programme?
The Mobilize programme combines one-on-one mentorship from members of the RE17 team with a 7-stage workshop series to help students interested in sustainability or equity to create SDG Alliances and initiate collaborative projects within Canadian post-secondary institutions. A crash course in advocacy informed and inspired by the SDGs, the Mobilize programme supports student-led projects from conception to evaluation and connects participants with a national community of practice across Canada.
The Mobilize programme consists of three components. First, through a series of 7 workshops and individualized mentorship sessions, we introduce participating students to the RE17 project framework. Our workshops provide participants with both a theoretical and a practical foundation to develop their projects towards sustainability and social innovation. Second, we connect participants with a diverse network of NPOs, mentors, and other student groups to support their projects and pave pathways to funding. Finally, we invite graduates of the programme to join our Community of Practice to collaborate with peers across Canada and share best practices.
