The United Nations 17′ interconnected Sustainable Development Goals are increasingly being used to drive strategy and define success at all levels of collective global aspirations has the potential to put the world on a sustainable path while supporting all who contribute to them.
Together 2017 set the foundation for how government, business, and civil society can work together to use the SDGs as a framework and common language. The symposium provided the opportunity to learn, share and connect with individuals across various sectors. In total, 270 attendees, representing 150 organizations attended. Furthermore, due to the generous support of our sponsors, we were able to subsidize the attendance of 50 youth, who are key to the success of the SDGs.
Together 2017 emphasized the importance of partnerships and we look forward to seeing more cross-sector work in Canada to advance the Sustainable Development Goals as well as Agenda 2030.
