Envisioning Sustainability at McGill

August 1, 2022 at 2:00 PM

“Sustainability” is a buzzword these days, but what does it really mean and how can we concretely work towards it? In this workshop, participants will learn what sustainability encompasses and how to get involved in campus initiatives, both in person and remotely. Through a presentation and discussion questions, participants will explore what initiatives are taking place at McGill, as well as how they can relate these principles to their actions on campus and at home.

Practicing Sustainability at Work and at Home

Whether working remotely or in the office, participants can learn how to apply sustainability best practices, behaviour change frameworks, and tools to foster environmental and social change.

Waste: What Goes Where?

Have you ever had questions about how waste is managed at McGill? This training will inform participants of how campus waste streams work, how to properly sort materials, and how this may differ from a remote working location.
