Leaving No One Behind: Advancing the SDGs in Nogojiwanong/Peterborough

February 25, 2021

Centering Indigenous Leadership and Diverse Perspectives to Advance the Sustainable Development Goals in Nogojiwanong/Peterborough is a free virtual forum designed to share and build on the collective work of over 100 community members on five local priority action areas to reach the 2030 targets:

SDG #1 No Poverty,

SDG # 4 Quality Education,

SDG #6 Clean Water and Sanitization,

SDG #13 Climate Action,

and Prioritizing Indigenous Leadership.

We invite you to join us to learn together and deepen our understanding of advancing the SDGs with our community in a way that leaves no one behind and prioritizes Indigenous leadership for success in this work.

About this Event:
“We respectfully acknowledge that we are on the treaty and traditional territory of the Michi Saagiig Anishinaabeg, Treaty 20 and Williams Treaties. 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, we are 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.
