Algonquin sustainability initiative expands to campuses across Canada

September 14, 2018

The World Wildlife Fund will expand Living Planet @ Campus, a sustainability initiative piloted at Algonquin College, to campuses across the country. An Algonquin release states that 11 postsecondary institutions, in partnership with the WWF and support from HP Canada, helped to spearhead the program. “Our Living Planet @ Campus program provides students with opportunities to take action on sustainability, be leaders for nature and earn certification to take into the professional world when they graduate,” stated Sarah Winterton, Director of Nature-Connected Communities at WWF-Canada. Algonquin adds that the pilot program included tree planting along the Tay River watershed in Perth and a multi-campus competition held at the WWF Office in Toronto. Algonquin | WWF
