SDGs Youth Training Canada 


SDGs Youth Training Canada 2019.

Bringing the United Nations' SDGs to your campus

What SDGs Youth Training Is All About

SDGs Youth Training Canada 2017 mobilized 5,900+ students from 77 post-secondary institutions at 32 trainings across Canada.


We're bringing this program across Canada once again in 2019!


We are inviting you to host the SDGs Youth Training at your university, college, or high school campus.


Participants will receive a 7-day video course, each 3-5 mins long, before attending the training to get a basic sense of what the SDGs are.


What to expect: 


  • We will review the history of sustainable development, the structure of the SDGs (17 goals, 169 targets, 232 indicators), and examples of each of the 17 SDGs implemented by a variety of stakeholders.

  • We will bring a UN staff who will share how their agency or department underwent a transformation to implement the holistic SDGs in partnership with its communities. 

  • We will review examples of SDGs implementation by young people across Canada and around the world.

  • We break up into small groups - taskforces - to develop an action plan for a specific and concrete way to implement the SDGs in the community.


Join the #CANYouth4SDGs movement through nation-wide networks on SDGs and direct engagement with UN staff by hosting the Training on your campus.
