2021 Benefitting Society - Sheridan College - Canada
Sheridan’s Sustainable Development Innovation Ecosystem Project builds on Sheridan’s 2024 Strategic Plan: Galvanizing Education for a Complex World (GECW) and is a call to action that builds on our strengths, our commitment, and our vision.
The project encompasses the on-going activities that led to our adoption of the SDG Accord as well as the significant contributions that Sheridan has made to community development through the work of our leaders in community implementation of the SDGs: Mission Zero, our framework for institution-wide sustainability initiatives; and EDGE, our social enterprise and impact entrepreneurship hub.
The work described here focuses on a pivotal time between late 2019 and end of March 2021, during which Sheridan as an institution “discovered” the SDGs and the role they can play in preparing us for action to realize our Vision as an epicentre for ground-breaking, standard-setting higher education that unleashes everyone’s full potential and empowers people to flourish in and shape an ever-changing world. The Sustainable Development Innovation Ecosystem Project is the foundation of our journey to 2030, the beginning of our Decade of Action.
