In 2015, the 193 member states of the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This set of 17 goals aim to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for everyone in every country on Earth by 2030.

Three years later, how is Canada doing in its efforts to meet those goals on behalf of its citizens? That will be the focus of the Generation SDG Summit on April 22 to 25, hosted by the Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI).

TVO will be there to live-stream four public lectures. The Agenda will also produce three episodes related to the summit's discussions.
