Conservation: Taking part in a global movement for sustainable development

United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals

United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals

Have you noticed the multi-coloured pin worn by Dr. Horacio Arruda, Quebec’s public health director, during his COVID-19 updates?

The 17 colours in the circle symbolize the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Established in 2012, these goals address global challenges related to the environment, health, justice and equality, creating a blueprint for a better world. A multitude of organizations across the globe are working together to achieve these goals by 2030.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada is no exception; through our projects, we are helping to reach five of the SDGs.

Here is what we are doing to build a better world for tomorrow:
