Sustainability Awareness Week: October 20 to 24, 2014. Details coming soon

Sustainability Awareness Week

SAW 2014 will run from October 20 to 24. Check back here this fall for more details.

Sustainability Awareness Week (SAW) offers University of Alberta students, staff and faculty the chance to learn something new, discover how they can get involved and explore sustainability-related issues that are relevant to them.

Dozens of free workshops, tours and lectures run across Augustana Campus, Campus Saint-Jean, Enterprise Square and North Campus. Events are hosted by the Office of Sustainability and organized by student groups, campus organizations and community organizations. Activities relating to economic, social and environmental sustainability highlight how individuals can make a positive difference.
