There is currently social unrest in Quebec, Canada, where students and high school students are demanding more accessible education, while the government stubbornly replies the country can’t afford the low tuition fees currently offered to students, to be increased +75% in the upcoming years.
Beyond the political debate, it’s inspiring to see youth actively involved in their future. It’s clear that if we have to live harmoniously in a society, we have to adopt sustainable practices. Having only financial targets and deciding without involving stakeholders is a recipe for social discourse, with the price far greater than you would have paid if sustainable practices were followed in the beginning. It is now estimated that the price of the student strike is now far beyond the hike in tuition fees.
