The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly and adopted by countries around the world. They are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity in a world where no one is left behind.
The Sustainability Ambassadors are planning a week-long SDG event to discuss the framework through various lens including Indigenous perspectives, science, city, and social entrepreneurship. Besides boosting awareness of the SDGs, the aim of our SDG Week is to facilitate increased collaboration among various organizations working on the goals.
Through active discussion and listening, the SDG Week will encourage groups to recognize that sustainability is wholly interconnected and that we are more connected to one another than we may think.
