Everyday for Everyone: Sustainable Development Goals Workshop with Neeraja Havaligi

February 20, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm


This interactive workshop will explore how the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can enhance sustainability in Portland and beyond. Through the SDGs, we can zoom out from US-centric sustainability models to solve local and global challenges. Students will reflect on how to create change in their communities. We will then put knowledge into action by serving in the garden outside Smith.
