14th National Sustainable Campuses Conference presents

Please join us on October 11th to the 14th at the University of Toronto Mississauga for Canada's largest grassroots, campus sustainability conference

The Healthy Campus Conference will touch on the numerous connections between health and the environment. A healthy campus is a place where students thrive and we want to explore how this influences the student experience. There are many components that build a healthy living environment not only for the planet but for each individual's health as well.

The Sustainable Campuses Conference is different from most conferences. It is an active training ground to empower participants with the skills to lead successful initiatives on their campuses. At the conference, participants will: build and enhance their skills through participatory and engaging workshops and field trips; enjoy group discussions with leading sustainability experts, youth and scholars; and meet hundreds of university students, professors, and university administrators with whom to share success stories.

Since 1999, the Conference has been supporting, documenting and sharing the efforts of young Canadians who implement environmental and social responsibility projects in their schools. This has resulted in the strengthening of a national network of hundreds of students working together to make institutions of higher education leaders in sustainability.

You can play a key role in the visioning and implementation of this year's conference by joining the Sustainable Campuses National Conference Steering Committee.
