In the midst of an accelerating climate emergency, governments around the world have committed to bold targets to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. However, global challenges like climate change and inequality require solutions that leverage the individual strengths of people from different countries, backgrounds, and identities in all their diversity. As community leaders, colleges and institutes must ensure the approach is intergovernmental, intersectional, and intergenerational.
What role is there for post-secondary institutions in fostering intergenerational equity in sustainability, and how can colleges and institutes help shape climate policy that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to flourish?
In this episode, our expert guests will explore Canada’s climate commitments, progress towards achieving the global goals, and where work still needs to be done.
