Advancing the SDGs in Canada
SDSN Canada is part of a global SDSN movement to build a network of universities, colleges, research centers, and knowledge institutions to promote practical solutions for sustainable development.
With over 1,300 participating institutions worldwide, SDSN members work together to support action-oriented research to address some of the world’s most pressing problems, including the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement.
- June 16, 2021For the first time since the SDGs were launched in 2015, global progress for the Goals has decreased, in large part due to the historic disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This decrease in progress is a stark reminder that the UN's Decade of Action for the SDGs is more urgent than ever in helping the world "build forward better" from the pandemic.In response to this urgency, SDSN Canada is issuing its second 'Member Challenge' to accelerate progress for the SDGs in Canada. We invite all members to take on any of the following challenges and to leverage their networks and influence to make the SDG Agenda a priority in their regions. Over the course of the coming year, we will spotlight member initiatives created from this call to action to inspire others.
