Waterloo Global Science Initiative

Tuesday April 24, 2018  |  Waterloo

The Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI) brings together multi-disciplinary, multi-generational and multi-sectoral group to collectively work together on a focused subject. The WGSI's current focus is on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), a set of global goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all- including Canada- by 2030. 

This WGSI Summit, Dr. Shelagh McCartney was invited to participate in discussions on how Canada can implement the Sustainable Development Goals. Over four days a group of 40 people, including our partners from Eabametoong First Nation, will work collaboratively to design a subnational framework for action on the SDG. 

To learn more about the WGSI Generation SDG watch the opening keynote address by Dr. Katharine Wilkinson or check out the Generation SDG website, twitter or instagram for updates.
