As part of a global network of student leaders, SDG Youth Coordinators work on campus to create SDG Hubs to ensure students are aware of the SDGs, understand their importance to the wider community, and have opportunities to take action towards their implementation during their studies and after they graduate. There are currently 13 SDG Coordinators across Canada working on a variety of initiatives.
