sdgs in wider community

It has a process to achieve the different SDGs, but they are not only limited to the process of teaching students, relations with the government and research.

Throughout the years, events, campaigns, seminars, and processes have been generated to raise awareness of the importance of the SDGs, as well as to encourage the population to take part and help in these processes.

This is not only limited to the Dubai community but also to the whole UAE.

Canadian University Dubai (CUD), the Canadian Business Council of Dubai and the Northern Emirates, and the Consulate General of Canada in Dubai, have joined together to mark the conclusion of the fifth annual Dubai 30X30 Fitness Challenge with a community participation event under the banner ‘Try with Canada’.

In collaboration with the Community Events Section of Dubai Sports Council, the Canadian partners invited people of any age and ability to get involved to mark the finale of this year’s initiative by joining in an early morning yoga session, led by a professional instructor from Lululemon, at the Dubai 30X30 Fitness Village, Kite Beach.

The yoga session was a continuation of another ‘Try with Canada’ challenge staged earlier in Dubai’s month-long celebration of fitness and wellbeing. The previous gathering brought together participants of all ages from across the city to take part in a family walk and run at the Sports Village beach. These events gathered over 100 participants to join in the physical fitness challenges.

One way to reach a larger number of people is through our partners, with whom we have alliances and help the community learn about events, provide support to students and other research and management processes together.

Higher education thrives in the UAE by the combined support of government, corporate partners and the community at large.

Engagement with these entities for the betterment of the community is fundamental to both the vision of this country's leaders and the goals of the university. Canadian University Dubai endeavors to establish these relationships and to participate in the ongoing success of the community we serve.

Canadian University Dubai has established itself through corporate partnerships with leaders of government and industry both nationally and internationally.
