  Sustainable Development Goals Launch Event  
(Seminar/Conference)

On April 17, 2021, the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences, in partnership with Foundation for Environmental Stewardship (FES) a youth-led, youth-serving sustainable development organization, is launching a program to celebrate the UN Sustainable Development Goals. These are the 17 areas that the UN has issued an urgent call for action through global partnership. The goals recognize that ending poverty and solving other pressing problems must go along with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality all while addressing climate change, and preserving our environment. This is your chance to learn all about the SDG, meet those who have worked closely on these goals, and gain knowledge on how to mobilize for change.

VT Students can register for this free virtual program that will be held on Saturday, April 17, to help launch the Sustainable Development Goals. Students will hear from speakers, and will participate in activities related to the SDG.

Students will be able to participate in the following:
-Review the history of sustainable development, the structure of the SDG (17 goals, 169 targets, 231 indicators), and examples of each of the 17 SDG implemented by a variety of stakeholders.
-Have a chance to engage with Gary Fowlie, a retired UN staff member, who will share how their agency or department underwent a transformation to implement the holistic SDG in partnership with its communities.
-Learn about many examples of SDG's implementation by young people across the world and gain insight on how to mobilize around the SDG to affect change.
