Prepr is excited to announce its partnership with Linux Foundation, Wilfrid Laurier University, Colleges and Institutes Canada (CiCan), Singularity University among others to empower students from both high schools and post-secondary institutions to tackle the UN Sustainable Goals using open-source, data-focused learning challenges. This nation-wide, Canadian initiative will commence on Pi Day, March 14, 2020 with various workshops and virtual events organized by Prepr and its network of partners.
This initiative was originally created in 2015, when Canada and all other United Nations Member States, committed to implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which set 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to eliminate poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity by the year 2030. January 2020 marked the launch of the ‘decade of action’ and we are proud to create unique learning experiences for students coast-to-coast.
Through this unique partnership, Prepr is committing to support the creation and launch of 100 SDG Learn Labs across Canada over the next 4 years and engage 100,000 students in taking action.
