UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS TRAINING

UNITED NATIONS COMES TO UNIVERSITY OF SASKATCHEWAN


Are you interested in climate action? Reducing inequalities? Peace and justice? Eradicating poverty? Clean energy? Responsible consumption? Sustainable economic growth? Working for the United Nations in the future?

 

Do you want to get involved in locally or internationally implementing these sustainable changes to help make the world a better place?

 

The USSU Sustainability Committee and the USASK Model UN with the Office of Sustainability are excited to bring you a unique opportunity to explore the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals! In 2015, UN Member States unanimously adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with 169 targets to frame their agendas and political policies over the next 15 years to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.

 

At the very centre of this agenda are youth! The only way to achieve all 17 Goals is to inspire the next generation of leaders to take up the message and act proactively in their communities to create lasting and sustainable change. In cooperation with the Foundation for Environmental Stewardship, the U of S will be hosting a UN SDGs Youth Training Seminar led by UN officials and student leaders from around the country. Interact with UN officials, policymakers, and civil society activists who identified, created, and are implementing the Sustainable Development Goals around the world.

 

This event is open to all, and seeks to encourage Canadian youth to learn more about how to contribute to international development. This training seminar is targeted at Post-Secondary students, but High School students are also welcome!

 

You will receive a certificate for the training from the Foundation for Environmental Stewardship.

 

NOTE: This training seminar is open to both high school and post-secondary students, as well as the community at large.

Who Are We?

University of Saskatchewan Students Union

Founded in 1909, the University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union is the representative body for all University of Saskatchewan undergraduate, extension and certificate students. We are a non-profit corporation governed by an elected four-member student Executive and University Students’ Council. The Students’ Union represents student concerns to the University, city, provincial and federal governments, including concerns about sustainability.

 

University of Saskatchewan Model UN

The USask Model United Nations is a model or simulation of the United Nations. We strive to engage students in debates and discussions on international issues in the form of an annual conference, which simulates the processes of the United Nations. Students represent a country of their choice, and study its policies and stances on international issues in order to participate in discussions with other “delegates.” Preparation for the conference is given in the form of meetings and training sessions in order to familiarize students with the fundamentals of a Model U.N. debate, how to draft resolutions, and the proper procedures in a U.N. debate.

 

Why are we Doing This?

Foundation for Environmental Stewardship is a Canadian registered charity and a UN accredited organization with a mission to empower youth for sustainable development. We are working with UN programs to deliver practical training for youth on advocacy and local implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
