Students Leading the Way in SDG Engagement

How can students inspire change and foster engagement in sustainability? By examining two case studies out of McGill University, participants will develop an understanding of how they can create meaningful opportunities for passive and active engagement in the SDGs. Participants will be guided through the steps taken to organize McGill’s inaugural SDG Week, in which 10 student groups gathered to create dialogue around the SDGs and the development of a Student SDG Guide, which offers undergraduate students practical information about how they can become more involved in engaging with the SDGs in courses, research, and extracurricular activities.
