Change begins with understanding. The Blueprint Media is a student-led current events newsletter that reports on Canadian, World and Ongoing issues bi-weekly. Since its inception in early 2018, The Blueprint has sought to inform youth on essential world events by breaking them down into digestible, accessible articles. By exposing students to relevant issues, we hope to foster future educated voters and global leaders. The Blueprint has thus published over two hundred articles, each written, edited and formatted with dedication and care.
