What is your favourite Shuffle memory?
Our Shuffle for Climate Justice team took part in the Global Climate Strike on September 27, 2019, and raised $6,000 for a new Leadership in Environmental Sustainability Shuffle Award. There were some organizing elements that I would improve upon if given the chance, but to be able to participate with my colleagues at the biggest climate march in history was a unique and gratifying experience.
How did you get involved in the Shuffle?
In my first year working at Concordia, the sustainability team (now the Office of Sustainability) within Environmental Health and Safety organized a biking contingent of the Shuffle, where we cycled along the bike path between the two campuses. That was a lot of fun — until we realized how early and hungry we were when we arrived!
What’s new about the Shuffle this year?
That we are seeking Sustainable Event Certification for the first time! That means that the Shuffle will be more socially responsible and environmentally friendly than ever.
