The City of Kitchener, in collaboration with the Waterloo Region Small Business Centre, is hosting a Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Speaker Series focused on the contributions of organizations and entrepreneurs to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal targets. The theme of this session is to end hunger, achieve food security and improve nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture.

The event will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 18, from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at Kitchener City Hall (200 King St. W.)  as part of raising awareness and accountability for the sustainable development goals. To register for this upcoming session, visit SDGSpeakerSeries.eventbrite.ca.

Waterloo Region is fortunate to be home to so many organizations and entrepreneurs focused on social, environmental and economic innovation. In this session, a panel of business owners and organizations will share insights into how innovation can be used to solve food security challenges locally, nationally and globally.  

Over the course of the year, the City and community partners will invite speakers to present topics related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, as part of a series of seventeen sessions. Topics for future sessions will be announced closer to the session dates.
