Sustainability Student Group Inventory

University of Toronto’s 2021-2022 Sustainability Student Group Inventory

The 2021 (2020-2021) Student Group Inventory is the 3rd edition of this inventory completed by CECCS.

Source: This list includes student group, clubs, societies, unions, and associations at the three University at Toronto campuses and affiliated colleges with mandates that align with the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The groups were identified through student group networks, searches from the U of T Student Organization Portal, University of Toronto’s Environmental Research Network (UTERN) and other university websites and networks.

Methodology: The 2021 inventory was compiled by first using a set of Python programs, where organization names and descriptions were matched to a set of keywords related to each SDG. The identified organizations and keywords were then manually screened to ensure relevance to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The resultant list is sortable by Group Name, Campus, Group Description, Primary Contact, Email, and SDGs. 242 student groups were identified in total.

The needs of a community are best met by those living in it, and who better to enhance our programs than youth themselves. Youth volunteers with significant musical achievement provide mentorship to our participants in group and one-on-one classes., Our approach is two-tiered. We seek to enhance our children’s educations with the inclusion of music, as well as to enhance our volunteer youths who gain, from their participation in MBCC’s programs, self-enrichment and fulfillment., Currently we offer one-on-one instrumental lessons for ages 7-12 and early childhood music appreciation group class for ages 3-5, and we're always looking to expand our programming!Stella Hungmusicbox.toronto@gmail.comSDG4

As a global social innovation enterprise, we combine grassroots action with advocacy at the highest levels of policy making to create a just, equitable, peaceful and nuclear-weapons-free world.

Our actions are therefore driven through a human and planetary lens, built on the pillars of multilateralism, collaboration and intergenerational solidarity.

We use Education for Sustainable Development as a transformative tool to empower youth and adults alike, providing them with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors to think and act for a sustainable future. We use innovative communication modes of Art, Music, Dance, Drama Sport, Eco-Fashion and Writing as well as STEM education in our interactive workshops and conferences, and supplement these with ground level action campaigns that target the accelerated implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Our actions are guided by the United Nations mandate of “Leave No One Behind” and our engagement programs are especially directed towards the empowerment of the world’s most marginalized sections such as refugees, orphans, the destitute, COVID-19 affected communities and the homeless. The issues that we focus on are Climate Justice, Social Upliftment, Land Degradation, Clean Water & Sanitation, Sustainable Consumption and Production, Peace and Nuclear Disarmament, Gender Equality, Biodiversity Conservation, Clean Energy, Future Justice and rebuilding better through the creation of local circular economies.
