The International Development Studies Student Association (IDSSA) and the Indigenous Students’ Association (ISA) from the University of Toronto Scarborough would like to invite you to the second annual International Development Case Competition.
This year our focus will be shifting, as we will be discussing development in our own backyards. The case study that we will be looking at is about a First Nations community called Aamjawnaang, located near Sarnia, Ontario surrounded by 60 petrochemical industrial facilities, along with biohazardous waste that continues to poison the water, air, and soil in the area and has had detrimental effects on the health of community members.
Through the competition, we hope to spark discussions around corporate social responsibility, structural issues within government policy, public health, community led development work within the local context. We look forward to seeing how the debates unfold and what you bring to the competition!
To participate you must enter in teams of three or four by MARCH 16th! THIS EVENT IS FREE TO REGISTER IN.
There will FREE FOOD, CASH PRIZES, and GREAT DISCUSSIONS! So come on out and compete! Tickets are available here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/international-development-case-competition-at-utsc-aamjawnaang-tickets-21533562465
