Transforming our world: Canadian perspectives on the Sustainable Development Goals

Posted on January, 20 2016 by Action Canada

With 2016 comes the implementation of the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted last September at the United Nations. At the time, the Canadian Council for International Co-operation (CCIC) in collaboration with the Canadian International Development Platform (CIDP), put together a blog series through Huffington Post’s Development Unplugged to collect perspectives of Canadian experts, including Action Canada Public Affairs Officer Sarah Kennell, from domestic and international organizations on the new agenda and its 17 goals.

Given the popularity of the blog series, CCIC has compiled these articles into an English and French publication, updating all the short essays, and including a new longer overview that ties them all together.

There are four new articles exclusive to the booklet – providing children, disability, indigenous and youth perspectives on the new Agenda, as well as a short guide to help University and College professors use the publication to facilitate class discussions.
