Event description

Description

The Manitoba Council for International Cooperation invites you to participate in a roundtable discussion about how best to achieve long-term sustainability through the Sustainable Development Goals.

Through these free, focused discussions, participants will:

  • Learn more about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Connect with others who are doing similar work / have similar experiences
  • Contribute to the conversation as we gather your feedback to help guide Canada’s approach to working toward the SDGs.

In this session, we will focus on what Canada needs to address as we work towards implementing Agenda 2030 and a more sustainable future.

Summarized learning from the roundtables will be shared with participants, as well as government departments working to implement the SDGs in Canada.

We invite you to join the conversation by registering here to attend!

Background:

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are part of a sweeping agenda to provide a shared global vision with concrete targets to help ensure a better world for all. At MCIC, we know that Manitobans are global citizens with a lot to contribute to the conversation and national strategy to achieve the SDGs.

To help start this conversation, MCIC will bring together community representatives from diverse sectors in different dialogues across Manitoba. We will facilitate the discussion around key considerations and approaches, as we contribute to the conversation on how to best develop a national strategy to implement the 2030 Agenda. The learning from these sessions will be shared with the federal government and is a key contribution to a comprehensive national strategy.

If you have any questions, please contact pe [at] mcic.ca or read more about the national strategy here. This event is funded in part by the Government of Canada's Sustainable Development Goals program (Employment and Social Development Canada).
