May 8 (the second Monday of the month) is the 110th meeting for Systems Thinking Ontario. The registration is at https://sdgs-st-on.eventbrite.ca .

The Sustainable Development Goals: Origins, Context, and Perspectives 

Within the Systems Thinking Ontario community, we have an authority on the Sustainable Development Goals with Ned (Nenad Rava), Head of Programmes,  Joint SDG Fund.   The interest in the March 2023 ST-ON session peaked some interest into unpacking the history and trajectory of the SDGs.

As an opportunity for novices and the immersed to participation in a conversation around the SDGs, we will center on three questions:

(1) How did the SDGs come to be, and Why? (10min)

(2) What do SDGs have to do with systems change? (15min)

(3) Where do we stand in early 2023? What happens next? (10min)


The session will be moderated by David Ing.
