For Students

As students, we are at the forefront of environmental degradation and exhaustion left behind from previous generations. It is burdensome to take on the responsibility of mitigating and remediating what has already been done to our planet, but with group action anything is possible.

Queen’s has excellent student led clubs and initiatives taking on multiple aspects of environmental sustainability. I encourage everyone to become involved in one of these groups, as new ideas and perspectives are what makes them so powerful!
