Advocacy and The UN Sustainable Development Goals – A Round Table Discussion

Join us for a round table discussion about how we can transform our world!  The discussion will be held on Saturday, November 26th, and our main topic will be the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Sasha Caldera from EWB’s advocacy campaign #ChallengeAccepted will be leading a discussion about how we can all play a part in achieving these goals and ensure our government is investing in those who need it most. Then we will focus on a few goals in particular, Gender Equality, Affordable and Clean Energy, and Quality Education, in discussions lead by our members Polliana Mendonca and Khalil Kelani.

Come share your knowledge, experience, ideas, or passion. Whether you’re knowledgeable or simply curious, everyone will take something away from the discussion and have valuable input to add.  Don’t miss out!  Visit this link UN SDG and let us know if you’d like to add a goal to discuss on the day.

Oh! There will be snacks, refreshments and great company, as usual.  Donations are welcomed. Register here!
