Passionate about sustainable development in Canada?
Applications are open now for young leaders (aged 18-30) who reside in Canada for the Generation SDG Summit (April 22-25, 2018).
Hosted by Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI) this unique gathering brings together brilliant minds and unheard voices from different disciplines, generations, and geographies to address the pressing challenges of tomorrow — today.
The goal of the Generation SDG Summit is to develop a cohesive Canadian narrative and clear pathways for collaboration that will help catalyse the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Canada.
A key part of WGSI’s Summit structure is ensuring that 50% of the room (about 20 people) are young leaders between the ages of 18 and 30. To facilitate this, WGSI finances and coordinates all pre-approved air and ground travel, accommodations, and meals for participants during the Summit.
We encourage applicants from all areas of sustainable development covered by the UN Sustainable Development Goals including but not limited to health, education, gender equity, water rights and quality, energy, decent and work and economic growth, reducing inequalities, Indigenous rights, sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption and production, climate action, peace and justice.
See wgsi.org/apply for more details and conditions of eligibility.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Midnight EST, February 11, 2018
