Project Officer, Marketing/Content
Christopher Klune was born and raised in Calgary, Canada where he obtained a Bachelor of Education and Arts. Since then he has taught on 3 different continents: at the Canadian International School Amman, 3 different school boards in Canada, and in the Kibera informal settlement in Kenya. His teaching experiences have deeply informed his perspective and firm belief that accessible, equitable, and quality education systems are crucial for building a more sustainable world where all humans can flourish. He has used the SDGs as a lens to engage youth in thinking about their place and purpose in creating a more sustainable world, and is currently involved in more initiatives to make systemic impacts in education, teaching, and learning. He currently works at a large nonprofit in Canada tackling food insecurity in schools, is co-leading two funded projects as a youth ambassador with Ocean Wise Canada, is a Teach SDGs Ambassador, and is an active member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers community where he is coordinating a project on adult education access and gender equity in Edmonton, Canada. He also writes for the Humanitarian Clique and has contributed to a publication with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. On the whole, he still prefers working with youth as adults are far more boring and don’t seem to find his jokes funny.
