This two-hour course was created for Concordia faculty and staff who are interested in sustainability and want to learn more about it and how to advance sustainability at Concordia. The course provides details on resources available to the university community as well as highlights ways that faculty and staff can improve sustainability within their workplace.

The course is also the first session for those who wish to register as Employee Sustainability Ambassadors, a new pilot program for staff who wish to receive guided support in implementing sustainability within their department. More information on the Employee Sustainability Ambassadors program will be given at the end of the course.
