Canada can and must provide stronger leadership toward a more sustainable & peaceful world. Why now? 2015 is a critical year for several big reasons :
- The new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that will replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will challenge the world to do better on urgent global issues.
- World leaders will forge a universal, legally-binding climate deal that must be strong enough to avert global environmental catastrophe.
- On its 20th birthday, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action on Women's Rights will be reviewed and governments will be called upon to recommit to its full implementation.
- Canadians will go to the polls in a crucial federal election.
