Event description
The University of Saskatchewan is committed to helping the global community achieve the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

About this Event

Is it possible to tackle COVID-19 and leverage this moment of crisis to re-emerge stronger and united in our efforts to address the UN 2030 Agenda?

That’s the focus of the 4th annual People Around the World (PAW) Conference. This year’s online event promises an exchange of innovative ideas, strategies, and collaborative efforts focused on re-examining the solutions required to address the Decade of Action and implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

GLOBAL TO LOCAL FOR THE GOALS:
Harnessing the power of collaboration to re-emerge stronger and together
A two-day, online conference event
Feb. 2 & 3, 2021

Join the University of Saskatchewan for this important event bringing together expert research, applied knowledge, and lived experiences to create the path forward for stronger, more resilient societies capable of meeting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the wake of COVID-19.

Collaboration and perspectives from all walks of life are required now more than ever in order to answer the “universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere” through the SDGs. From policymakers, physicians, and engineers, to entrepreneurs, scientists, and the general public—each of us can find a personal or professional connection to one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The insights gained, perspectives shared, and collaborations inspired through PAW 2021 have the potential to leverage elements of the COVID-19 crisis and steer the world back on track.
