On October 21, 2017, St. Thomas University and the University of New Brunswick will be hosting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Youth Training Event (SDGs). The United Nations, through the Foundation for Environmental Stewardship, wants to empower youth to promote seventeen sustainable development goals for a better world.
In celebration of Canada's 150th, the SDGs Youth Training Canada will mobilize 10,000 Canadian youth to advocate and implement the SDGs through 100 local actions and 50 trainings events in colleges and universities across Canada in 2017.
Participants will be able to interact with UN officials, policymakers, and civil society activists who identified, created, and are implementing the Sustainable Development Goals around the world.
