For both graduates and undergraduates students
The Environment Committee of McGill Post-Graduate Student Society (PGSS) is organizing an UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG) Youth Training on Wednesday 25th October 2017 from 4-8 pm. The aim of these 17 UN goals cover the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic growth, social inclusion, and environmental protections to become a sustainable world of coexistence, set to be accomplished by 2030.
The PGSS Environment Committee (PEC) works with PGSS members, staff and executives on campus environmental issues. This includes monitoring PGSS' policies relating to environmental issues, ensuring representation on university environmental committees and groups, and planning educational events for PGSS members that ensure interaction on environmental issues between the PGSS and greater Montreal community.
In celebration of Canada 150th, the SDGs Youth Training Canada mobilizes 10,000 Canadian youth to advocate and implement the SDGs through 100 local actions and 50 training's in colleges and universities across Canada in 2017.
Interact with UN officials, policymakers, and civil society activists who identified, created, and are implementing the Sustainable Development Goals around the world.
You will receive a certificate for the training from FES.
Develop a deeper understanding of the Sustainable Development Goals and be connected with organizations through which you can be the SDG Advocates.
NOTE: This event is open to both high school and post-secondary students as well as the community at large.
