You won’t want to miss this powerful experience!  The KAIROS Blanket Exercise. Experience the history you did not learn in school!
The Blanket Exercise is based on participatory popular education methodology and the goal is to build understanding about our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada by walking through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance. Everyone is actively involved as they step onto blankets that represent the land, and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples. By engaging on an emotional and intellectual level, the Blanket Exercise effectively educates and increases empathy.
We are offering this amazing learning opportunity at our Professional Development day at our District Conference and we are excited to partner with the Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia for the event.  Join members of various not-for-profit organizations and community volunteers from the area and Rotarians from across the district in the powerful event.
Open to everyone – but you need to register.  For incoming Presidents and Secretaries, there is no additional fee (but you still have to register!).  For other conference participants, partners and guests, the fee is $25.
