About Generation SDG

Hosted by Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI) this unique gathering brings together brilliant minds and unheard voices from different disciplines, generations, and geographies to address the pressing challenges of tomorrow — today.

The goal of the Generation SDG Summit is to develop a cohesive Canadian narrative and clear pathways for collaboration that will help catalyse the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Canada.

A key part of WGSI’s Summit structure is ensuring that 50% of the room (about 20 people) are young leaders between the ages of 18 and 30.
