The IF.G SDG Challenge

From April 23 to May 14, 2022, 80+ students from around the world will design the ideal education system focused on UN Sustainable Development Goal #4: Quality Education For All.


The Learning Partnership, with Lead SDG Partner BMO, is supporting 10 student participants to represent Canada in this IF.G SDG Challenge. Working collaboratively in multinational teams of four to six, students will:

  • Engage in three live, two-hour online workshops guided by professional education facilitators and diverse, inspiring BMO volunteers (more details here) 
  • Work in small international teams to collaboratively problem-solve and innovate real-world solutions based on local and global perspectives 
  • Pitch their innovations on May 14 and celebrate achievements, including recognition through special Awards & Honours

Where student experience meets volunteer engagement

BMO volunteers will participate in the SDG Challenge in numerous capacities including keynote guest speaker, volunteer co-facilitators and judges. These volunteers each play an important role equipping student participants with future ready skills, promoting sustainable futures and representing BMO’s commitment to ‘Boldly Grow the Good in business and life’.
 

Gina Jeneroux, BMO's Chief Learning Officer, says "School taught people how to get the right answer not how to solve problems” in her keynote The skills we can develop now to help build the future we imagine to SDG Education Challenge participants on April 30, 2022.
