SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals

The Global Goals can only be met if we work together.

Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development. Goal 17 is about fostering global partnerships, International investments, and support to ensure innovative technological development, fair trade and market access, especially for developing countries. To build a better world, we need to be supportive, empathetic, inventive, passionate, and above all, cooperative.

York sees the challenge of climate change as a call to action here in Canada and around the world. As part of our commitment to build a more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable world, York is honoured to be designated as the home for Canada’s first Centre International de Formation des Acteurs Locaux (CIFAL). CIFAL centres serve as hubs for a global knowledge training exchange among government officials, the private sector, academia and civil society. CIFAL York will be a centre of innovation in our shared fight against climate change housed at York’s Markham Centre Campus under the leadership of Professor Ali Asgary, in collaboration with the associate director, Associate Professor Idil Boran.
