The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Movement Map

In 2016, NCGC worked with the British Columbia Council for International Cooperation (BCCIC) to find more of the network of people working toward the SDGs.   What we found was an Invisible Mosaic” of hundreds of groups working toward the SDGs, many of them unknowingly through the work on projects and initiatives they were already doing. 

We asked how to move forward and make the invisible mosaic, well, visible  – and thus, the Movement Map was born.
