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.
Canada’s SDG Coordinators bring experience mobilizing young people to take action on a range of social issues and represent some of SDSN Canada’s earliest institutional members. The four Coordinators are (from top to bottom):
- Dale Ross – Wilfrid Laurier University
- Anne Bernard – Université Laval
- Kayla Hardie – University of Waterloo
- Landon Reeves – Simon Fraser University
Under the guidance and mentorship of SDSN Canada’s Youth Network Coordinator, Christopher Bell, the four Coordinators are working to bring together their campus student leadership to discuss ways to collaborate towards the SDGs. Events are also being planned, including a national youth consultation on SDG implementation, an SDG Scavenger Hunt, and on-campus SDG trainings.
