Like most journeys, this one is a mix of exciting possibilities, continued education, and remaining open to change. As a framework to help us on our journey we are supporting the Sustainable Development Goals.
They are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals set up in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are designed to meet the urgent need for improving the quality of life for everyone globally by 2030. 193 countries signed on to the plan (including Canada).
At SCCU, we’re answering the call for all businesses to reevaluate their own practices and start implementing strategies on how to reach these goals - together.
We've selected 6 to focus on based on the greatest opportunity we have to make an impact in the lives of our members and communities as well as the greatest potential risks if not acted upon.
Read below on our current activites to support these goals with more to come as we learn and grow.
