About this Event

“We respectfully acknowledge that we are on the treaty and traditional territory of the Michi Saagiig Anishinaabeg. We offer our gratitude to the First Peoples for their care for, and teachings about, our earth and our relations. May we honour those teachings.” 

Hosted by the Kawartha World Issues Centre (KWIC) and GreenUP in collaboration with community partners working to advance the Sustainable Development Goals in Nogojiwanong/Peterborough. 

 

In March 2020, KWIC and GreenUP received the Sustainable Development Goals Program funding for a one year project called Advancing the SDGs 2030 Agenda in the Peterborough and Kawartha Area, which aims to further Canada’s commitment and progress towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development through local engagement. The 2021 SDG Forum highlights 4 local SDG priority action areas through the lens of Indigenous Leadership and with the intention to leave no one behind to achieve these goals.
