Launching Forward: Using the SDGs to innovately engage students in study and work abroad opportunities

Seneca utilized this project as an innovative approach to widen access and equity of participation in outbound student mobility programming. This project was the first time that Seneca: i) purposefully engaged students from underrepresented target groups through First People’s at Seneca and Accessibility and Counselling Services; ii) built new partnerships with Canadian NGOs that offer study and work abroad opportunities related to the SDGs; iii) hosted a Global Opportunities fair showcasing international partners with study/work abroad opportunities for students; and iv) facilitated a college-wide case competition challenging students to create an action plan to address the 17 SDGs 2030.
