UVic Global Days


November 15-19, 2021

2021 theme: Sustainable Development Goals
The UN Sustainable Development Goals: Global citizens working together towards shared visions of a better tomorrow.

The United Nations (UN) have identified 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to address our planet's biggest challenges.

UVic Global Days is a globally focused week-long community event that celebrates the diversity, values, pursuits and successes of UVic and its broader communities.

Sessions hosted throughout the week will include film screenings, presentations, info sessions and interactive workshops—including a presentation on ethical chocolate from the African continent and chocolate tasting.

Kicking off the week, Beth Eden of QS World Merit will inspire audience members to recognize the impacts we are each capable of making towards meeting the UN SDG’s. Eden has worked with SDSN Canada, as well as the UN, and is recognized as a 30 under 30 Sustainability Leader and 25 under 25 Environmentalist in Canada.

Students, faculty, staff and local and global community members are all welcome and encouraged to attend the week’s events. Many sessions will be offered virtually, with some also available to a limited in-person audience. All sessions are free to attend.
