Event description

Description

The University of Manitoba and the Foundation for Environmental Stewardship (FES) are pleased to present the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Youth Training Canada in Winnipeg!

On Sept 25, 2015, 193 countries unanimously adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by framing their agendas and political policies over the next 15 years to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. The SDG Youth Training Canada program aims to engage youth from across Canada to take action toward to SDGs.

So far, the SDGs Youth Training Canada mobilized 5,900+ students from 77 post-secondary institutions at 32 trainings across Canada. The University of Manitoba and Winnipeg are up next!




The training session will feature the following:

  • 7-day video course, each 3-5 mins long, before attending the training to get a basic sense of what the SDGs are.

  • Review of the history of sustainable development, the structure of the SDGs (17 goals, 169 targets, 232 indicators), and examples of each of the 17 SDGs implemented by a variety of stakeholders.

  • Guest speakers from the United Nations sharing how their agency or department underwent a transformation to implement the holistic SDGs in partnership with its communities.

  • Review examples of SDGs implementation by young people across Canada and around the world.

  • Small group sessions - taskforces - to develop an action plan for a specific and concrete way to implement the SDGs in the community and/or on campus.
