Project Someone Director, Vivek Venkatesh, will speak at La pandémie et les polarisations sociales : points de vue et perceptions des établissements d’éducation [The Pandemic and Social Polarizations: Views and Perceptions of Educational Institutions], where he will discuss the PROFILE and Landscape of Hope projects. Project Someone collaborators Cécile Rousseau and postdoctoral fellow, Diana Miconi, will also participate.
This virtual half-day event, presented by the RAPS team and organized in collaboration with the SHERPA University Institute, the UNESCO-PREV Chair and Éducation Québec, will take place April 13, 2021, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“The literature emphasizes the central role of education communities in prevention, but how should we view this in the specific context of Quebec? How can we prevent social polarization, considering our history, current social issues, and community resources? How do we deal with the increase of certain tensions in the context of a pandemic? ”
