His Highness the Aga Khan on Embracing Pluralism
“The world we seek is not a world where difference is erased, but where difference can be a powerful force for good, helping us to fashion a new sense of cooperation and coherence in our world, and to build together a better life for all”.
October 15th, 2010, Institute of Canadian Citizenship
In honor of the opening of the Global Centre for Pluralism and Canada’s 150th Birthday, Naznin has created two journals for all children and youth across the globe.
- My Kidz Canadian Citizenship Journal
- My Kidz Global Citizenship Journal
Both journals focus on citizenship, volunteering and diversity. The journals are designed for children and youth to reflect and write about their own identity, language, values, culture and heritage, volunteering and citizenship activities. The journal also provides a list of helpful websites to support children and youth in this journey.
Engaging Children and Youth in Pluralism
Naznin has created her own new company, Citizenship for Kidz Academy. The Academy’s vision is to engage children and youth in “Volunteerism, Citizenship and Diversity”.
