Did you know that you're probably already helping to achieve the UN's Sustainable Development Goals?

Join us for a roundtable workshop to explore how the SDGs relate to the work of local groups and organizations, and how groups are already achieving these goals either locally or globally. The roundtable is part of a series of meetings and aims to make visible the amazing work already happening on the SDGs in Canada and to share this work provincially and nationally. Join us in exploring the potential for improved collaboration and impact across sectors in Saskatchewan. Discussion will focus on the following questions:

1. What are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and why do they matter?

2. How do the SDGs relate to your organization's work locally and/or globally?

3. How can the SDGs be an opportunity for greater collaboration and impact?
