#kids2030 | #CSforGood

For 2020, Hour of Code is focusing on Computer Science for Good (CSforGood), and so we made sure our projects linked to learning about Global Goal #4 and #12 - Quality Education and Responsible Consumption and Production.

This is part of our #kids2030 initiative, which aims to equip a million Canadian children with the digital skills they need to help meet the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development by 2030. Want to get more involved? Take the #kids2030 Challenge and help build a better future with less plastic pollution!
