  • Decide what level of politics you want to focus on:  Local (Toronto or Ontario), national (Canada), international (UNFCCC, negotiations, China, multinational corporations)
  • Investigate and summarize the current state of politics (within the last 6-12 months) at the level you’ve chosen:   Search media sources and government reports for information.
  • Consider what political change you want to contribute to:   (e.g. Public Opinion? Renewable Energy? Political Polarization? Other?)   Review your course readings and notes as well as any research you've done so far for ideas.
