Faculty, staff and students are invited to provide their feedback on a series of medium- and long-term priorities being considered for the university’s Climate Action Plan (CAP).
“The CAP advisory committee has gathered a wealth of ideas for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and incorporating climate change into the curriculum and research activities,” says Caroline Davis, Vice-Principal (Finance and Administration). “Community input is vital as we work toward a final comprehensive plan that fits Queen’s.”
The survey is tailored for faculty, staff or students. It asks a series of questions related to greenhouse gas reduction strategies, and curriculum and research integration. It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete the anonymous survey.
Principal Daniel Woolf signed the University and College Presidents’ Climate Change Statement of Action for Canada in February 2010. The major commitments in this plan include completing a comprehensive inventory of all greenhouse emissions on campus, developing a comprehensive plan to reduce those greenhouse gases, and creating a CAP that brings together the university’s research, education and operations to contribute to the effort to combat climate change.
