In 2015, the 193 members states of the United Nations (UN) adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), providing a vision of a brighter future for people and the planet. They explicitly recognized the links between social, economic, and environmental sustainability, stressing the crucial need to address issues of poverty, inequality, health, education, and economic growth, while tackling the challenges of climate change and biodiversity conservation.

This speaker series will introduce all 17 SDGs from an interdisciplinary perspective and will examine progress towards these goals in Canada and across the globe.

This iteration features Rebecca Tittler and Eric Pedersen. Rebecca will address SDG 15: Life on land, focussing specifically on sustainable forest management and biodiversity lossEric will address SDG 14: Life below water, focussing specifically on effects of fishing and nutrient inputs on aquatic food webs as an example of how human impacts can interact to change aquatic ecosystems. 

This series was developed in collaboration with Peter Graham, currently teaching LOYC 398-03 Perspectives on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
