TWSB EXPEDITIONS

Our expeditions aim to mutually benefit researchers, volunteers, participatory schools and communities through the implementation of our holistic approach to educational access while also providing volunteers with a unique experience to travel abroad and positively impact their surroundings and themselves.

Our expedition model is the catalyst that enables research conducted by our THINK TANK to be realized.

Barbados 2018:  May 12th - May 22nd

The Walking School Bus is honoured to be an official research partner for McGill Universities course in Social Entrepreneurship and Economic Development.  This 10 day, 3-credit intensive aligns with The Walking School Bus research driven approach and we're looking forward to the remarkable research and impact that is generated. 

Social Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (SEED) taught through field work and case studies. Project activities with local partners will be done in teams of 3-4 students from Canadian Universities to complement theoretical components. Project groups will work with fledgling or struggling local initiatives to develop sound business plans, market strategies, and evaluation guides to build strong business practices leading to long-term sustainability. Three categories of social entrepreneurship and economic development projects are anticipated in the areas of agriculture, environment and, international development. Evaluation will be done primarily on the basis of a final paper and presented orally by each group; detailing their business plans in relation to the concepts covered in the course and their viability and sustainability in the Barbados business context.

  • Field work with Barbadian entrepreneurs and businesses.
