uCalgary launches new Institutional Sustainability Strategy

February 26, 2016

The University of Calgary has launched a new Institutional Sustainability Strategy that will reportedly mark the first time that such a strategy incorporates an academic framework to advance education and sustainability research. “The most progressive organizations today are not afraid to address sustainability challenges, from finding solutions to extreme poverty to climate change,” said uCalgary President Elizabeth Cannon. The institution also announced the launch of a new interdisciplinary sustainability certificate, which will be focused on solving complex social and environmental challenges faced by local and global communities. "Sustainability right now is such a hot topic,” commented a uCalgary student, “to have some background knowledge and do a capstone project and work across disciplines with every other year of study would set you apart." uCalgary | Metro
