Register now and join the OEN and local member Protect Our Water and Environmental Resources on June 16 to discuss enabling our work to reflect and embed ecology and the environment in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), why and how ecology and environment is critical to moving towards the SDGS and to reflect on how and why we should lever the SDGs in the work we do in Ontario.
Setting the stage with invited panelists in an interactive discussion, we will spend the balance of Saturday June 16th diving into our collective wisdom to discuss and record what we can do in the short and medium term. Building out our workshop portion, we will also discuss what our focus could be for project work for OEN over the next five years
