Our City: A Peg Report on Sustainability
Winnipeg is changing. Winnipeg has always been changing.
The fourth edition of Our City, A Peg Report looks at Winnipeg through the lens of the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, economic, and social well-being. These three pillars are examined together because, as a whole, they provide a holistic understanding of well-being.
This is the first Peg report to include the integration of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This is a new approach and lens for Peg that has also been embedded within the online tool (mypeg.ca). Showing the linkages between Peg indicators and the Sustainable Development Goals allows us to not only track our own well-being, but also provides an opportunity to see how we are influencing, and part of, change globally.
Winnipeg is changing, and Peg is tracking our progress.
