Help Tell Canada’s Story
Posted April 17th 2018
In 2015, Canada committed to implementing the 2030 Agenda, which set 17 Sustainable Development Goals to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity by the year 2030.
These goals are universal and apply to all countries. For Canada, this means working to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities, tackle climate change and support sustainable and inclusive economic growth here at home — while also helping other countries through diplomacy, trade, peace and security, and international assistance.
One of the principles of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is to ensure participatory and inclusive processes. So, the Government of Canada is inviting Canadians to contribute to Canada’s Voluntary National Review by providing snapshots of Canadian efforts to build a more sustainable and prosperous future.
These snapshots should be prepared as written submissions on how your organization or community is advancing the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs for short) in Canada and internationally. Some stories may be used as contributions towards Canada’s Voluntary National Review or may be featured on a Government of Canada website.
Some questions to get you started:
- What has your organization or community done to advance the SDGs in Canada or internationally? What gaps have you sought to address?
- Has your organization focused on a specific SDG?
- How do you plan to measure progress toward the SDGs?
- What innovative approaches related to sustainable development have made a difference in your communities?
Visit international.gc.ca to learn more about Canada’s Voluntary National Review and to share how your work is helping achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
Submissions will be accepted until May 4, 2018.
