The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a game-changing agenda that provides a shared global vision to align effort and action for a better world. At ACGC, we believe Alberta-based organizations and businesses have the ability to work together to achieve this common agenda, but must better understand each others’ roles and mandates to make this happen. To get this conversation started, the Together Alberta project will bring community representatives across various sectors together in 35 roundtable dialogues across all regions of Alberta, aimed at facilitating conversation on our impact on the SDGs and understanding the ecosystem of organizations working on the SDGs in Alberta.
The results of the Province-wide roundtables will be mapped online, allowing the public to see the work local organizations are already doing to achieve the SDGs at home and abroad. Mapping also allows groups to see that they are not alone, and are in fact part of a movement that numbers in the thousands, and provides a tool for groups to connect and collaborate with each other around shared goals and amplify impact.
If you are interested in partnering with ACGC to host a SDG mapping roundtable in your community please contact Laveza Khan at email@example.com.
