Hello all, I am Jofri Issac. I moved to Canada last year as a permanent resident and currently enrolled for Sustainable business management (SMB) program at Seneca College. Previously, I worked as a research/project associate at the Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA), India for five years where I used to lead my field team in organizing and conducting stakeholder engagement programs across Indian states for multiple climate change and sustainable livelihood projects. It was during this period, I got inclined to the field of sustainability and decided to pursue a course in sustainability. I was also associated with an NGO in India where I had the opportunity to manage and coordinate multiple environmental awareness programs which include a zero-waste initiative for Anand city.
Through the Agents of Change: SDG program I intend to create social entrepreneurship where sustainability awareness in our day to day choices occurs through community engagement. This is to provide the community members with a platform to understand and generate awareness about making sustainable choices.
