Institutions, students launch initiatives to improve environmentalism on campus

January 21, 2022
Institutions and students at three institutions across Canada have recently taken on environmental initiatives. Mount Allison University is building a green roof, which will be connected to MtA’s student centre’s rainwater cistern. Two students at Wilfrid Laurier University started an initiative to help students conveniently recycle e-waste such as light bulbs, batteries, and electronics on campus. Thompson Rivers University has partnered with Creative Energy to develop and operate an on-campus district energy system for TRU’s main campus that is expected to offset over 100,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas over the next 30 years.
