Event description

Description

We are pleased to announce that Together 2018 — the second annual, internationally recognized Symposium fostering collaboration and innovation around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Canada and beyond — will be held this November 5 & 6, 2018 in Edmonton, hosted in partnership with the University of Alberta. Building on the foundation of partnership, innovation, and cross-sector collaboration, Together 2018 calls on delegates to explore their role in advancing the SDGs in Canada and around the world. This symposium will examine Canada’s progress on achieving the SDGs, acknowledge new leaders that have joined the movement, and identify innovative ways to tackle the 2030 Agenda.

Together 2018 is partnering with the internationally recognised How to Change the World professional development programme originally developed at University College London (rate as one of the top ten universities in the World). This unique SDG-focused professional development programme is ideal for current students and early-career professionals to explore how to mobilise your knowledge and networks to make a tangible impact on the SDGs today. Run regularly for global networks such as the G20 Young Global Changers, and for international conferences organised by institutions such as the UK Royal and US National Academies of Engineering, the How to Change the World programme at Together 2018 is a professional development opportunity not to be missed — and spaces are limited. For more information please visit together2018.ca.

In 2017 Canada launched the Feminist International Assistance Policy (FIAP), which seeks to reduce extreme poverty and build a more peaceful, inclusive and prosperous world using a feminist lens. The policy recognizes that promoting gender equality and empowering women and girls will create a more prosperous society. Together 2018 will have a particular focus on Goal 5: Gender Equality.

*Your ticket includes access to the full Together 2018 program as well as meals & refreshments for both November 5th & 6th.
