Staff and Faculty talking in front of green wall

The University of Waterloo, in collaboration with Sustainable Campus Initiative, is excited to host the second annual Eco-Summit.

This half-day summit will give participants the opportunity to learn more about environmental sustainability progress on campus, hear from groups who are implementing programs and initiatives, and encourage input into Waterloo’s future campus efforts. As the President’s Advisory Committee on Sustainability explores a sustainability policy and other guiding documents, your input will be an important part of the process to inform an ambitious but realistic approach. The summit will bring together key staff, student, and faculty stakeholders to learn, network, and brainstorm.
