CIARS in Conversation Webcast: Dismantling Anti-Black Racism in Schooling & Education: Fighting the Global Racial & Health Pandemic
Join the Centre for Integrative Anti-Racism Studies (CIARS) for the inaugural launch of our CIARS in Conversation series. First in the series, this conversation will explore how COVID-19 has exacerbated longstanding systemic injustices as highlighted by Black and racialized communities being further exposed and disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. With the return to school, neighbourhoods more highly impacted by COVID-19 tend to be the ones with more frontline workers who are not left with many 'choices' regarding their children's educational options. Watch the webcast on YouTube.

Webinar: The SDGs Paradigm at U of T: An Exploration of SDGs Embedding in Courses and Activities
Special U of T event featuring Dr. Hilary Inwood, lead of OISE's Environmental and Sustainability Education (ESE). The United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted in 2015 as a global framework to achieve prosperity for people and the planet by 2030.
At U of T, actors and organizations from both academic and operational sides have adopted the SDGs to pursue important sustainability work in the social, humanitarian, environmental, and economic realms. This panel, which features champions of SDGs embedding on campus, will provide an insightful and in-depth exploration of how various initiatives have advanced U of T's commitment to the world's arguably most ambitious set of goals. Pertinent topics will include past and current work, such as the creation of an SDG-based course inventory, a new university ranking system according to SDGs, and the advancement of SDG design-thinking through community engagement work. The panel will also delve into upcoming initiatives, such as the ambitious "17 Tables" events that will feature 17 round tables of U of T researchers according to their SDG of focus, and OISE's Climate Action Plan to reduce its carbon footprint and work towards a sustainability mindset.
