We are all connected on this pale blue dot in space. Even more so than we think. The need to protect all the people and places on our planet is becoming more apparent.
In 2015, the United Nations agreed on an ambitious but achievable plan to halt climate change and to end poverty and inequality for everyone, everywhere by the year 2030.
We know that together, a better world is possible. But in order to make real, sustainable progress by 2030, our solutions must move beyond charity.
As a coalition of organizations dedicated to global cooperation, peace and justice, SCIC members work to tackle the root causes, not just the symptoms, of interconnected global issues. But in order to transform our world into the world we want by 2030, we need everyone.
As one person, we can each learn more, and take small actions that can lead to big things. When we take responsibility for our impact in global systems, we help to create sustainable, justice-based solutions.
So where do we start?
Looking Deeper is the first step.
Look Deeper is an education and awareness campaign calling on Saskatchewan people to:
- Look below the surface to find the root causes of four major global challenges: hunger, health, education and conflict;
- Learn about sustainable, justice-based solutions that tackle root causes by focusing on: equality and power, healthy ecosystems, partnerships and solidarity, and dignity and human rights;
- Inspire others, using creativity and the power of the human voice, to join a global movement of people working to create lasting change and to make the world a better place.
Ready to take the plunge?
