About SDA

Based out of Concordia University, Sustainability in the Digital Age grew through a Future Earth Canada Hub initiative to explore how digital innovation can be used in support of healthy people and planet, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals

We convene diverse stakeholders, create high-level reports, statements, peer-reviewed articles, and action plans for a more liveable planet.
