What are SDGs?
Adopted by Canada and all 193 United Nations Member States in September 2015, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a 15-year global framework centered on an ambitious set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with 169 targets and more than 230 indicators.
The 2030 Agenda is a people-centred, universal and transformative blueprint for sustainable development. It envisions a secure world free from poverty and hunger, with full and productive employment; access to quality education and universal health coverage; achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls; and ending environmental degradation.
Volunteering is a common thread among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. With thanks to funding from The Guelph Community Foundation Community Grant, PIN – The People and Information Network developed and delivered two workshops on ‘Volunteering and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).’
In addition, individuals seeking to volunteer in support of one of the 17 SDG’s, we have a search feature on our volunteer opportunity database.
Learn more about local contributions to the SDG’s through this skillful crafted video by local videographer Liam Magahay.
