New knowledge and fresh thinking: Businesses can’t afford to miss the student talent advantage

President, Universities Canada

Young people across Canada recently headed off to university for the fall semester. Those of us a little older may feel a twinge of envy, as we remember our own time on leafy campuses in September.

We ignore the liberal arts at our peril

By Alan Wildeman

Who would have thought it would come to this.  Academics around the world are having to explain why there is value in studying history, English, philosophy, psychology, creative arts and the other subjects that collectively make up what we loosely refer to as the liberal arts, or the humanities and social sciences.  It is the equivalent of masons having to justify mortar and plumbers having to justify pipes.

Be sure to pack your insurance before heading off to school this fall

For parents and post-secondary students making final arrangements to return to school this fall, there are a lot of things to think about.

Youth making differences

Youth making differences

The UN General Assembly is calling for the youth of the world to have a place in charting the course towards healthier communities as part of International Youth Day, celebrated on August 12 this year.

As family members, guardians, mentors, teachers or peers, how can we be role models? How can we create opportunities for young people to get personally involved in charting a better future?

At the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), we believe in building opportunities for Canadians of all ages to connect with and care for our natural places.
