No Poverty

No Poverty Event May 16 CSI Spadina
CSI 192 Spadina Ave, Toronto
Can we achieve SDG #1 No Poverty, by 2030?
More than 700 million people still live in extreme poverty. Poverty includes hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making. Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality.

Join us on Tuesday May 16 at the Centre for Social Innovation, Spadina Atrium, as we have an interactive discussion on the realities of achieving UN Sustainble Development Goal #1: No Poverty, by 2030.
