Students Prioritize How to Implement the SDGs in Canada

Waterloo Global Science Initiative, SDSN Canada  TakingITGlobal, and Youth Climate Lab, with the support of the Government of Canada’s SDG Unit, recently teamed up to engage university and college students across Canada on their perceptions of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how they should be implemented on campus, in their communities, and across the country.

The results of the engagement will directly inform the creation of the Government of Canada’s forthcoming National Strategy on SDG Implementation, and will kick-start a robust approach to youth-led initiatives across the SDSN Canada membership.
