About Saint Mary's

Sustainability Week

Sustainability has many definitions. In a broad sense, it can mean ensuring the next generation has the same opportunity we have to enjoy our earth today and into the future, and share in the experiences that are important to us. Environmental sustainability is a common topic of discussion, but did you know sustainability extends to the economy, social justice and equality?

Communicating, engaging and understanding are the keys to progress. By following the same values and visions that have been embedded in each of us since we were young, together we can get to where we need to be on campus, throughout communities across Canada and joining cultures around the world.

Sustainability week is a celebration of sustainability with a focus highlighting Sustainability programs and initiatives happening on the Saint Mary's campus. Our goal is to engage and involve students, faculty, staff and the entire University community.
