WHAT ARE THE SDGS?
In 2015, UN Member States unanimously adopted the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development with 169 targets, framing their agendas and political policies over the next 15 years to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. At the very centre of this agenda are youth! The only way to achieve all 17 Goals is to inspire the bourgeoning generation of leaders to take up the message and act proactively in their communities to create sustainable change.
WHO IS FES?
The Foundation for Environmental Stewardship (FES) is a non-for-profit and has a consultative status with the United Nations’ Economic and Social Council. Partnering with UN entities, FES has curated high-level educational content on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Their mission is to “create a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable future by empowering youth.” Learn more at https://www.fesplanet.org/
WHO IS HANVOICE?
HanVoice was started by three law students in 2007, concerned about the lack of an adequate Canadian response to one of the worst ongoing human rights tragedies of our generation. Today, HanVoice is Canada’s largest and leading non-profit for North Korean human rights and refugees. At HanVoice, we seek to give voice to the voiceless. Learn more at https://hanvoice.ca/
WHO IS UTSU?
Founded in 1901, the University of Toronto Students’ Union (UTSU) is the official student government of more than 43,000 students at the University of Toronto. If you’re a full-time undergraduate student at the St. George Campus or the Mississauga Campus, you’re automatically a member of the UTSU. As a student government, they operate independently of the University and strive to be a democratic, member-driven organization. Learn more at https://www.utsu.ca/
