The City of Kitchener, in collaboration with the Waterloo Region Small Business Centre (WRSBC), hosts a free monthly speaker series, called SDG Talks, to explore the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and how we, as individuals, can help create a more socially and environmentally sustainable planet. We bring together entrepreneurs and organizations who use business as a force for good. 

Join us for our next SDG Talks event focusing on goal #4 – Quality Education on Tuesday, Feb. 13, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the SDG Idea Factory, 2 King St. W., Kitchener. We will explore providing accessible and equitable education to all communities, focused not only on childhood education but also on lifelong learning opportunities for people of all ages. Our panel features knowledgeable professionals from organizations supporting a range of learning opportunities, including:

Maedith Radlein, Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for the Waterloo Region District School Board, will facilitate this important discussion.
