Our University has a critical role to play in developing a sustainable world for us and for generations to come. It has been one year since the release of the University of Waterloo’s Environmental Sustainability Strategy and the progress we’ve made in our 2025 goals is well underway and making a difference.

This week the University of Waterloo officially opened the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) of Canada hosted at the University by the Faculty of Environment.

It is an honour to have the SDSN here at Waterloo, in partnership with the Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI), and with the launch comes an increased capacity to explore and find solutions to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
