The Sustainability Hub is an open network of Concordia students, staff, faculty and fee-levies. We share resources, engage community, foster collaborations, and support initiatives related to sustainability on and around campus.
What the Sustainability Hub has to offer:
- Network and community-building
- Collaborative problem-solving
- Promotion of member events and programming through monthly newsletter (850 subscribers) and through amplification on social media
- Planning and participation in annual sustainability mixer and sustainability champion awards
What the Sustainability Hub is seeking to build in 2022-23:
- Commitment to and adoption of anti-oppression best practices at the individual, group, and Hub level (e.g., develop new projects and partnerships as a Hub that are led by institutionally unprotected members)
- Co-working (e.g. sharing best practices, resources, policies)
- Event collaboration to address sustainability issues from various campus perspectives
- Peer-to-peer skill-share sessions (i.e. small groups that have complementary skill sets and expertise that can help each other address their strategic priorities more efficiently)
How does it work?
- The Hub meets on a regular basis in-person or online to check in, share resources, and support each other's sustainability initiatives and events.
- We send out a monthly sustainability newsletter, managed by the Office of Sustainability, that includes sustainability news, events, and opportunities.
- A small group of active members take part in planning for the Hub and on occasion, small working groups are formed to organize events.
- Primary communication takes place on Microsoft Teams, which current students, faculty, and staff have access to for free using their Concordia credentials.
*Fee-levy staff who aren't current students can get an account in order to access the Microsoft Team.
