Community invited to December 5 workshop in new Trent Student Centre

Please join us December 5 at 7 pm in Stohn Hall (TSC 1.22) for Sustainable Development Goals in the Arctic. This event brings together researchers, policy-makers, diplomats, and Indigenous leaders in what should prove to be an innovative and exciting discussion of the potential impact of the UN sustainable development goals in the North. The event is open to the Trent and Peterborough community. 

“As one of only three universities in North America taking part in a series of workshops like this, Trent University is excited to be hosting this event,” explained Dr. Heather Nicol, professor in the Trent School of the Environment, and one of the workshop’s organizers. “As a partner with the Polar Research and Policy Initiative and University College London, Trent will take the comments, discussion and feedback that comes out of this event and bring forward to the United Nations meeting in New York in 2019.”
