OurWinnipeg 2045 recognizes that we need to work together to achieve complex global issues through local leadership and action. OurWinnipeg’s goals, objectives, and policy directions are based on 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and endorsed by the Government of Canada. OurWinnipeg 2045 localizes and condenses the SDGs into six key goals for the City of Winnipeg (see Figure 1 below). This framework provides a basis for achieving sustainable development, respecting human rights and measuring progress.
