What to Expect
Each week, EWB USask hosts a Member Learning that discusses various topics including international development, international aid, and how to use your skills to become a better leader and enact positive change about the issues you’re passionate about.
In the past, we have had several key fundraisers and events. Each year, we hosted a gala that features a keynote speaker talking about an issue the EWB USask chapter was passionate about that year. In 2016 Danika Littlechild was the keynote speaker, lawyer from Ermineskin Cree Nation in Alberta, to discuss Aboriginal People and water security in Saskatchewan.
Each year, we have done a Fair-Trade Candy Gram event to promote Fair Trade amongst university students. As well, we campaigned to have the EWB USask campus become officially designated as a Fair-Trade campus in which all university food outlets sell Fair-Trade food and items. As a result of this campaign, the majority of USask food outlets sell Fair-Trade items but we were not able to achieve the designation. However, we did increase awareness about Fair-Trade amongst USask students and administration.
