Learn how you can get experience and recognition as a leader in sustainability while completing your post-secondary program! Learn about the program from WWF-Canada and then ask your sustainability coordinator how to gain your designation while at Concordia.
The “Living Planet Leader” certification is a self-guided designation that requires a student to participate in the following sustainability activities during your time at Concordia:
On fulfilling these criteria, you will be awarded a certificate and will be able to include the designation on your CV.
1- Register as a Living Planet Leader with WWF Living Planet @ Campus.
2- Download the worksheet to learn how you can tackle the criteria at Concordia.
3- Track your progress and record your efforts on your Living Planet Leader profile; don't forget to also submit your activities to the co-curricular record.
4- Submit your completed application within 3 months after your final academic term of your program (or earlier) and achieve recognition as a Living Planet Leader!
Because of its ambitious and comprehensive nature, the Living Planet Leader designation will be included as one of the optional criteria to qualify for the new Leadership in Environmental Sustainability Shuffle Award, an undergraduate award created from funds raised by the Shuffle for the Climate team in September 2019. The award will be offered for the first time in 2021-2022.
It will also be made available as an option on the co-curricular record. If a student's activities under Living Planet Leader are not already included as valid activities through the co-curricular record, the student can use the "Living Planet Leader" position to gain co-curricular credit.
