BC Council for International Cooperation2:00pm to 5:00pm
Shatford Centre, Room 108
760 Main Street

This meeting will discuss how the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) connect to what’s going on in your community with a focus on SDG 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities.

The Penticton 2030 meeting is part of BCCIC's ongoing BC 2030 campaign which asks British Columbians “How is BC showing leadership on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?”. This year we are using the upcoming municipal elections to explore local leadership on the SDGs with a particular focus on SDG 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities. These meetings aim to identify concrete actions that could connect community sustainability initiatives in the year ahead and explore the role that municipal leadership could play in their achievement.

The meeting will include:

  • A brief introduction to the SDGs and overview of how communities, organizations and governments across Canada and BC are working with them.
  • Interactive discussion of Penticton’s performance on SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and key sustainable development challenges.
  • Use of the SDG framework to explore sustainability solutions that connect the dots between existing community initiatives and amplify the work already taking place in Penticton.

Please RSVP using the link below and if you have any questions you can contact us at camilla.volunteer at bccic.ca.
