As part of McMaster’s ongoing commitment to advancing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the university is proud to be a new member of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Canada.
Part of a global network of SDSN organizations, the Canadian chapter has 52 members across universities and colleges, all seeking to advance sustainability research and collaboration.
“We are pleased to join this network of innovative thinkers seeking to develop practical solutions for sustainable development,” says President David Farrar. “McMaster is home to many researchers and learners already working to tackle sustainability challenges through interdisciplinary collaboration. This network is another avenue for McMaster to contribute at a local and global level.”
The institution-wide membership builds on the SDSN experience of the McMaster Health Forum, a network member since 2019 as part of the Forum’s work to delivering research evidence and stakeholder insights to strengthen health and social systems.
McMaster’s membership opens up additional opportunities to help researchers and students tackle the SDGs, such as advanced notice for sustainability-related funding, online communities of practice, and the addition of a SDSN Youth Connector on campus.
