Sustainability Week: September 29 - October 3, 2019 

Sustainability Week strives to cultivate a culture of sustainability on campus and promote the sustainability initiatives that take place on and off campus. Participants are provided the opportunity to engage and inquire about the environmental issues facing our local and global communities and ecosystems. Sustainability Week brings together Queen’s staff, faculty, students and more than 40 collaborating partners, to host a variety of events throughout the week. These events are aimed to highlight aspects of sustainability and discuss how we as individuals and as a community are tackling climate change. The events for the week are organized according the Five Days, Five Ways themes which are: explore, act, inspire, eat and engage. Below is a full calendar of events, check it out and get involved!
