- RESULTS Canada citizen advocates are asking the Canadian government to prioritize and plan for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Since August, they have been mobilizing communities and taking action by telling everyone about the goals and what they entail, as well as sharing information about the goals on social media. RESULTS Canada’s citizen advocates have also taken action by communicating with decision makers, whether in person, by phone, email or through the media. They have worked tirelessly to inform and influence decision-makers around Canada’s important role in reaching the Goals. The persistent and passionate efforts of RESULTS Canada volunteers have played a major role in preparing Canada to make the SDGs a reality.

INternational Volunteer Day (IVD) 2015
On December 5th, International Volunteer Day, we not only celebrate volunteerism in all its facets - but also pay special tribute to volunteers working to implement the new global goals. Through volunteerism the person can impact the sustainable development agenda by mobilizing and engaging governments and communities. For IVD 2015 join us in recognizing the individuals who are engaged in volunteering their time, energies, and skills to change the world for a better future.
In this year’s IVD campaign you will see questions such as “Are you part of the change?”, “Will you take the challenge?“, “Are you ready?” and their answers, as thousands of individuals show how their volunteering is making a contribution and bring to light how volunteering is invaluable in making the world a better place.
Join us by posting your selfie here or on social media tagged with #IVD2015selfie and stories before and on 5 December 2015, filling the map to show how volunteering makes the difference in the Global Goals..
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
“As we seek to build capacities and to help the new agenda to take root, volunteerism can be another powerful and cross-cutting means of implementation. Volunteerism can help to expand and mobilize constituencies and to engage people in national planning and implementation for sustainable development goals. And volunteer groups can help to localize the new agenda by providing new areas of interaction between Governments and people for concrete and scalable actions.”
