UBC faculty, students, staff, community members and organizations across BC are invited to join Together|Ensemble at UBC – Advancing the SDGs in British Columbia as we discuss and explore key cross-cutting themes relating to:
- Climate Justice
- Just Transition
Events and panels throughout the day will advance participant understanding and appreciation of these key themes as they relate to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The notes generated from these discussions will be included in a final Together|Ensemble conference report which will be given to Canadian decision-makers in advance of planned high-level global SDG gatherings at the UN Headquarters.
Introductory remarks by UBC's Interim President Deborah Buszard, Minister Niki Sharma (BC Attorney General), and Sustainability Hub Senior Director Linda Nowlan. Also featuring a weaving workshop with Rita Point Kompst (Musqueam).
Hosted by the UBC Sustainability Hub in partnership with the Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC), the British Columbia Council for International Cooperation (BCCIC), and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS).
This event is part of Together|Ensemble, Canada's national conference devoted to tracking progress on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through academic-led initiatives.
