Tala Abu Hayyaneh

The Sustainable Development Goals Hub

Youth Participant

Tala Abu Hayyaneh grew up in Amman, Jordan and moved to Canada in 2015, and currently lives in Calgary, Alberta where she attends the Policy Studies program at Mount Royal University. SDG #17 which is “Partnerships For The Goals” is one of the top goals on her list, partnerships can create a sense of unity between stakeholders and foster a vision for collective action. Partnerships can happen through policy advocacy and change which is a very important aspect of her studies, policies are very powerful and if conducted through ethical and sustainable considerations they can have a long lasting positive impact on the world. Albertans need to remember that policies are not permanent, and can be challenged and changed through effective advocacy and partnerships. On her days off she dreams of starting a curly hair blog. One day. And she loves trying different cuisines from around the world, and regrets not exploring plantains before coming to Canada.
