According to Jerry Nussbaum, President of the Janusz Korczak Society of Canada, a six-part lectures series will be “devoted to key issues crucial to the well-being and rights of children and young people today.
The goal of the lecture series is to foster conversations among academics, professionals and child advocates from diverse fields concerned with the welfare of the child. We hope that the lectures and panel discussions will provide fertile ground for a fruitful exchange of ideas and approaches to improving the situation of young people in all spheres of society.”
The lectures will be held at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.
