United Nations SDGs Training Launch at STU

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Youth Training program mobilizes 10,000 Canadian youth to advocate and implement the SDGs through local actions and trainings in universities across Canada. In 2021 they are delivering this virtually, through the Foundation of Environmental Stewardship, to St. Thomas University students. This two-part training will be delivered online on a Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, to allow students to reflect and process their learning over two days.

At this event, students will have a chance to:

  • Interact with UN officials and civil society activists who identified, created, and are implemented the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) around the world. STU's guest speaker will be: Shannon O'Shea, Team Lead, Public Partner Advocacy & the Sustainable Development Goals at UNICEF.
  • Develop a deeper understanding of the goals to become a better student advocate.
  • Participate in skills training after a review of examples of SDGs implementation by young people across Canada and around the world.
  • Receive a certificate of training completion to add to your resume or CV.

STU Experiential Learning has partnered with the Foundation of Environmental Stewardship (FES), STU's Student Union, and STU Sustainability, to bring this event virtually to all STU students. This event provides students with a unique experiential education opportunity to learn about the 17 sustainable development goals directly from UN officials.

This event is free to current students at STU, covered by the Office of Experiential & Community Based Learning.
