SDSN Canada, Waterloo Global Science Initiative, TakingITGlobal, and Youth Climate Lab, with the support of the Government of Canada’s SDG Unit, recently teamed up to engage university and college students across Canada on their perceptions of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how they should be implemented on campus, in their communities, and across the country.
Are you passionate about making an impact?
Are you interested in joining a global network of change makers?
Are you determined to tackle the biggest challenges of our time?
SDSN Canada is currently looking for a young leader with experience in project management, community mobilization and/or stakeholder engagement, to lead and coordinate all its SDSN Youth activities in the Waterloo Region and throughout Canada.
In collaboration with SDSN Youth, we are pleased to welcome four new SDG Coordinators into SDSN Canada!
The SDG Coordinators help students on SDSN member campuses learn about and take action on the SDGs, as well as work with university and college leadership and faculty to promote the integration of the SDGs into campus activities. The Coordinators also work to organize ‘solutions labs’ where the community can come together to discuss Canada’s performance on the SDGs and generate ideas for accelerating local and national progress.
SDSN Canada is developing a ‘Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Index for Canadian Municipalities’ to benchmark municipal progress on the SDGs. The Index will be a valuable tool for municipal governments to align their visions of sustainability with the global SDG framework and explore how municipal leaders can set a framework for action to address the many sustainable development challenges affecting their communities.
The Sustainable Development Solutions Network is proud to announce the first (of many) newsletters. The newsletter with be a regular feature of the SDSN, and help connect you to the people, projects, events and issues associated with the network.
The September issue, takes a look at Canada's progress on the SDGs, the Generation SDG Youth Summit hosted by WGSI, and welcomes the newest members of the SDSN Canada team.
