Convocation is a special time for our graduates to celebrate their achievements with family and friends.
As we face the environmental challenges of the 21st Century – from climate action to green energy, and from clean water to the circular economy – some are calling for a shift to green entrepreneurship. But what exactly is green entrepreneurship, and how can youth, students and entrepreneurs connect to this emerging field?
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
