About this Event

Walk the Talk is a public event series hosted by the Manitoba Council for International Cooperation that offers an opportunity for the general public in Manitoba to engage in and discuss topics related to international development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is a discussion series where participants engage in conversation with other global citizens while experiencing nature.

Who Should Go: Manitobans! Any Global Citizen really. You don’t need to be an expert - we just expect respectful conversation. This event is wheelchair accessible. Service animals.

Who Should Stay Home: Anyone feeling unwell. Your four-legged fur babies; no pets please.

What You Should Bring: Your own re-usable water bottle – filled with water. Your thoughts. Comfortable footwear. Masks are mandatory. We will be observing any current Manitoba Public Health recommendations.

How Does it Work: When you register you’ll be asked to select your top three discussion topics. When you arrive at the event, you’ll be paired with a walking partner. We’ll do our best to pair you with someone who is interested in the same top topic.

Why You Should Sign Up: We all have something to share and all have something to learn. Sharing thoughts and perspectives, aka brainstorming, often results in divergent thinking – the creation of new ideas. This series is an opportunity for people who are interested in global issues to develop connections with like-minded individuals and to share ideas and resources that work toward a just world.

Respectful conversation means: Ideas are discussed freely, and all people are respected.

Topics for Conversation:

Theme 1 SDG 3, SDG 4, & SDG 5: What role could educators play to ensure COVID-19 pandemic response strategies adequately address children’s issues, especially girls’ issues, locally and in the Global South?

Theme 2 SDG 8, SDG 5, & SDG 12: If you choose to travel to Global South destinations post-COVID-19 pandemic, how can you contribute to the empowerment of local women?

Theme 3 SDG 5 & SDG 16: In celebration of Gender Equality Week in Canada, how could Canada’s notable feminists and gender equality champions be meaningfully recognized nation-wide?

Theme 4 SDG 5: How do we close the technology gap for women and girls in rural, remote and Global South destinations?

Theme 5 SDG 5, SDG 10 & SDG 14: How can women and Indigenous groups be meaningfully included in progress on local and international freshwater protection issues like sustainable use of freshwater resources and support for sustainable and small-scale fishing?

Sounds great! I want to Walk the Talk!
