#GNWT marking International Year of Cooperation with #YZF mural

See on Scoop.itNWT News

Representatives of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources were trying to bring attention to the mural this week because the art, which conveys a long river with cutouts of birds, fish and dragonflies, symbolizes the International Year of Water Cooperation. …

As a result, Tasha Stephenson and Stephanie Yuill, both of the department’s field support unit, along with summer student Keira Alty, were out on the street getting young children and members of the public to take hand paint prints and mark them on the mural.

Viewers may notice the animal cutouts are from another mural that was initiated by ENR in 2010 to mark International Year of Biodiversity. At that time, the mural was located on Franklin Avenue where the federal Gallery Building was being constructed. All of the wooden cutouts were designed by Stephenson and Yuill, cut out by the Sir John Franklin School shop class and painted by over 300 students from local schools. Since then, some of the pieces were moved to the 49 Street location by YK 1 chair and Clark Builders job site superintendent Al Shortt, although only about 150 of them were included because so many were damaged, said Yuill.

Northern_Clips‘s insight:

"…"Especially in Canada, we so take our water for granted, though I think we are starting to less and less because of the mercury and what is coming down from the oil sands, but we still do," said Yuill, who pointed out turning off your faucet while brushing your teeth is one example of how water can be conserved. …"

Northern_Clips‘s insight:

JHR (Journalists for Human Rights) is Canada’s leading media development organization. Our goal – to make everyone in the world fully aware of their rights – is as unique as it is powerful.

Since JHR’s founding in 2002 the organization has worked tirelessly to strengthen independent media in sub-Saharan Africa by building the capacity of local journalists to report ethically and effectively on human rights and good governance issues. JHR’s work ensures the media can play its rightful role as a referee between state and civil society.

The more people are aware and free to discuss human rights, the more they will hold their governments to account, leading to improved public services, less corruption, better economic opportunities and stronger democratic processes.

Since 2002, JHR has:

Run programs in 17 Sub-Saharan countries.Started Chapters at over 50 universities and high schools internationally.Trained over 12,000 professional African journalists and students.Engaged over 5,000 Canadian student Chapter members.Partnered with over 250 African media organizations.Reached an estimated 50 million Africans with human rights information through our local partners.
