Accélérer 2030

This event is co-organized by Accelerate 2030 Quebec, the EDS Institute of Laval University, the IFDD and the CIRODD. Considering the imminent renewal of the Quebec government's sustainable development strategy (SDG 2022-2027), this event aims to mobilize the actors concerned by the SDGs in order to explore opportunities for pooling efforts to accelerate the socio-ecological transition. The two 45-minute conversations will be moderated by Olivier Riffon, Professor of Eco-Counseling at the University of Quebec at Chicoutimi.

10:00-10:45: The organizers wish to reaffirm the added value of pooling and sharing resources and collaboration to achieve the SDGs.

With 17 goals and 169 targets, it is necessary to work together to achieve them. Considering our common position as actors in the Quebec SDG ecosystem, we want to set the table by presenting multi-stakeholder initiatives and approaches that unite us and promote the achievement of the SDGs.
