About Together | Ensemble 2020
Adrienne will write a reflection post about her participation in the Together | Ensemble 2020 Conference. The Conference, held virutally last year from May 20-22, 2020, took place a few months after the global pandemic hit, but brought together thousands of attendees to discuss progress on the SDGs and changing realities. Through her writing, she aims to engage the public on key takeaways and Canadian solutions to address the SDGs, especially the intersectional approaches that were presented during the conference.
Together | Ensemble is Canada’s national conference devoted to tracking progress on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The conference represents an all-of-society approach to addressing Canada’s toughest sustainable development challenges, bringing together the private sector, academia, government, and civil society.
