Sustainability Ambassadors Program
Joining the Sustainability Ambassadors Program is the most enriching way to volunteer with Zero Waste Concordia; you join an exclusive group of students who will be given the opportunity to take a deep dive into sustainability practice at Concordia. We offer regular volunteering slots for Sustainability Ambassadors and many of them select a zero waste themed project as their target problem. Past ambassadors have started compost clubs, designed zero waste video games, and made plant pots out of recycled plastic. Spots are limited!
Being an on-call volunteer means you are informed about various opportunities to lend a hand, whether that's helping guests at events sort waste, setting up waste bins on campus, conducting a waste audit, or spreading the word about zero waste practices. This is a no-pressure commitment and a great way to dip your toes in the water! Sign-up on our form below and join our Teams group.
We value the integration of academic inquiry into the practice of sustainability! Whether you are looking for a way to connect your course-work, research, or simply want to pursue a learning outcome independently, we may have an opportunity for you!
