Event Sustainability

We are proud to announce that the Spring Virtual Convocation Ceremonies have been awarded a Virtual Sustainable Event certification by the McGill Sustainable Events program run by the McGill Office of Sustainability. To achieve this certification, we implemented actions to promote the ceremonies’ accessibility, embedded opportunities for active engagement within the event structure, and calculated the event’s avoided greenhouse gas emissions related to transportation.
