About Together|Ensemble

Together|Ensemble is Canada’s national conference devoted to tracking progress on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The conference represents an all-of-society approach to addressing Canada’s toughest sustainable development challenges, bringing together the private sector, academia, government, and civil society. Together|Ensemble incorporates the foundational principles of the SDGs by being an event that is accessible, inclusive, multi-generational, equity-based, and bilingual. SDSN Canada at the University of Waterloo is the lead organizer for the conference.

Over three days, Together|Ensemble engages participants in taking stock of Canada’s progress on the SDGs and sharing the latest research, projects, and initiatives that will accelerate and inspire action. Day 1 and 2 are focused on “main stage” programming like keynote speakers, panel discussions, and networking opportunities, while Day 3 is reserved for Canadian organizations working on the SDGs to organize side-events, including workshops, announcements, and launches.

Since 2017, Together|Ensemble has been hosted four times in a series of symposia and conferences of Canada’s diverse and growing all-of-society community dedicated to achieving the SDGs. Originally founded in Alberta as the Together Symposium and run by the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation, the conference has grown to encapsulate a broader Canadian momentum for the SDGs. Most recently in 2022, Together|Ensemble was hosted online by the University of Waterloo, with a number of supporting partners.
