On September 25, 2015 the UN adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), an ambitious and transformative global agenda to end poverty, fight inequality & tackle climate change over the next 15 years. Two aspects of these 17 goals make them especially important for New Brunswick: 1) they are ‘universal’ and apply equally to all countries of the world – including Canada; 2) they outline a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity that will require global cooperation to achieve. This workshop will address the question of what these global goals mean for New Brunswick: What levels of government do the SDGs apply to? How can civil society organizations in New Brunswick use them in their work? How can we engage New Brunswickers with the SDGs? What opportunities are there for cross-sectoral collaboration to implement the goals in New Brunswick and around the world? The workshop will begin with a webinar, facilitated by Shannon Kindornay, a recognized Canadian expert on the SDGs and researcher at Carleton University’s Norman Patterson School of International Affairs, followed by breakout discussion groups. A cross-sectoral workshop organized by the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation (ACIC) and the Conservation Council of New Brunswick (CCNB).
