Event Details


United Nations
Youth Training Seminar


Do you want to help make the world a better place?

Are you interested in climate action, reducing inequalities, peace and justice, eradicating poverty, clean energy, responsible consumption, sustainable economic growth, or working for the United Nations? 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.

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.

Who We Are


Foundation for Environmental Stewardship

Foundation for Environmental Stewardship (FES) is a youth-led, youth-serving sustainable development organization. FES is a not-for-profit corporation whose registered charity number is 801430307 RR0001. FES is an accredited organization by the United Nations and has a special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations.

Our mission is to create a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable future by empowering youth. We envision every young person who will grow to make their personal and professional choices to reflect the human impact on the environment for a sustainable future. 

Partnered with 23 United Nations entities, the SDGs Youth Training Canada mobilizes 10,000 Canadian youth to advocate and implement the SDGs through 100 local actions and 50 trainings in colleges and universities across Canada in 2017.


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. 




University of Saskatchewan Office of Sustainability

Our mission is to build a model sustainable campus through community engagement and collaborative action. We strive to foster growth of a culture of sustainability throughout all areas of campus life—education, research, operations, governance and community engagement.
