On Thursday, October 26, the Faculty of Environmental Studies and the Bachelor in Environmental Studies' Student Association host the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Training for York University Students!
We are please to announce our keynote speaker for this event will be the Deputy Director, United Nations Environment Programme, Mr. Jamil Ahmad.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG’s), are 17 goals developed by the United Nations in 2015, which help to better understand, and solve a wide range of global environmental challenges, including; climate change, food security, ecological and wildlife preservation, gender equality, economic prosperity, and access to education. By spreading awareness of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we can inspire future generations to act, and solve the many environmental challenges we face today. Be a part of the United Nations Sustainable Development goals and learn how you can contribute to a better future.
Attendees will have opportunity to learn about implementing the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals on a local, national, and international scale, as well as the important role they have in assuring a prosperous environment for future generations. A certificate will be awarded to each participant who attends and completes the training.
