Acadia Sustainability Week

Background

Acadia Sustainability Week, held each October, is organized by the Acadia Sustainability Office in partnership with students and campus and community partners. Established at Acadia in 2010, the event grew out of the Campus Sustainability Day movement, which began in the United States in 2003. Since that time the event has expanded to include activities held at campuses accross North America.

Acadia Sustainability Week celebrates sustainability on campus and features events on five themes:  food, water, energy, waste and biodiversity.

The goals for the event are to:

  • highlight campus sustainability activities
  • create opportunities for students to get involved on campus
  • link local action to global sustainability issues

Watch for the event program updates in early fall.
