Many of us are aware of the UN SDGs, the 17 goals adopted by 176 nations which provide the world with an agenda for action on the critical issues of our day including attention to education, gender justice, inequality, water, health for all, peace and many more. The SDGs follow on the previous Millennial Development Goals that ended in 2015. What is different is that the SDGs are meant to be targets for the entire world, for the rich and the not so rich. They are universal.

Community Based Research has much to contribute to the attainment of the SDG’s. This webinar will focus on the critical contributions that CBR can make to the attainment of the SDGs in Canada and elsewhere. Special attention will be devoted to the Knowledge for Change Global Consortium, a global training network linked to the UN SDGs.
