Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work.
—Daniel Hudson Burnham (1846-1912)
We’re excited to introduce our new podcast on Canada and the Sustainable Development Goals, called No Little Plans.
Our first episode, launching on the Global Day of Action on September 25, will provide an overview of the SDGs and the status of the goals in Canada, featuring Joseph Wong, University of Toronto, John McArthur, Brookings Institute, and Deborah Glaser, British Columbia Council for International Cooperation.
The following episodes will take a deep dive on specific goals, with featured guests from across the country and in-depth interviews with community leaders.
Subscribe now to listen to our teaser, and be notified when our first episode comes out later this month!
Update: Episode 1 is now live and available to listen, download and subscribe on our website!
Building Momentum Around the Sustainable Development Goals in Canada
Also on September 25, we’ll be hosting a special webinar for the Global Day to #Act4SDGs. Learn how Canada is moving forward on the UN Sustainable Development Goals following the 2018 High-Level Political Forum in July, where countries around the world gathered at the UN headquarters to evaluate their progress on the global goals.
We will be hearing from the British Columbia Council for International Cooperation, Community Foundations of Canada, the Canadian Council for International Cooperation, and the newly-appointed SDG Unit within the Government of Canada.
