How we work toward the Goals

Our global network of over 100 Impact Hubs uses the SDGs as a lens through which to view our impact in the world. The United Nations Office in Geneva acknowledges Impact Hub as a driver of community engagement, helping not only to foster but also to extend the efforts directed to tackle the SDGs via entrepreneurial and innovative solutions.

In Ottawa, we advance the SDGs through dedicated programming and events hosted for and in collaboration with our membership base of over 300 social and environmental champions, who work across sectors to advance multiple SDGs.


Our SDG Programming & Events

Impact Hub Ottawa’s SDG programming is designed to equip our community with the knowledge, skills and networks to work across sectors to address the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable development in our community.

While in-person events are currently paused in response to COVID-19, learn more about our past and upcoming work below and stay tuned for updates and online offerings.
