The Manitoba government is peddling great reset and United Nations initiatives like “sustainable development goals” (SDGs) in public schools.
In partnership with the provincial and federal governments, lesson plans on the SDGs are being provided for educators by the Manitoba Council for International Cooperation (MCIC).
The materials frequently being pushed to Manitoba students also reference “great reset” style initiatives like Agenda 2030.
“Explain to students that these goals were created at the 2015 United Nations Summit. 193 United Nations came together to create these goals for the “Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. We only have a few years left, with a lot of work yet to do!” the lesson plan tells educators.
“We are determined to implement this agenda through a global partnership, based on a spirit of global solidarity, focused in particular on the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable and with the participation of all countries, all stakeholders and all people.”
The SDGs are 17 goals invented by the United Nations General Assembly and form a crucial part of the international organization’s Agenda 2030 plan to reshape the world according to the precepts of climate and sustainability ideology.
Some resources provided to students portray conservative positions and politicians negatively.
“The Paris Agreement, made in 2016, brings all nations into a common cause to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change and adapt to its effects, with enhanced support to assist developing countries to do so. As such, it charts a new course in the global climate effort,” a lesson plan on climate justice reads.
“Yet President Donald Trump has backed out of the Paris Agreement… What does this mean as a large producer of emissions contributing to climate change?”
A “Reading List for Global Students” created in partnership with the Government of Canada by MCIC features the book “The Lines We Cross” for Grades 6-8 students as recommended reading.
“Michael likes to hang out with his friends and play games online. His parents drag him to rallies protesting against the refugees flooding the country. And it all makes sense to Michael. Until Mina, a refugee from Afghanistan shows up at his school and turns out to be funny and smart. Suddenly, things seem much more complicated,” the summary states.
