Acadia Sustainability Week

Acadia Sustainability Week is an annual event held each October to celebrate the sustainability movement in higher education and achievements in sustainability at Acadia. Events and activities raise awareness about sustainability initiatives on campus, create opportunities for people to take action, and educate the campus community about important local and global sustainability issues. Established at Acadia in 2010, the event grew out of the Campus Sustainability Day movement, which began in the U.S. in 2003. Since that time the event has expanded to include activities held at campuses across North America.

The Acadia event is organized by the Acadia Sustainability Office in partnership with students and campus and community partners. Past partners include the Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens, Department of Environmental and Sustainability Studies, Valley Waste Resource Management Inc., Efficiency Nova Scotia, Kings Transit and more.

Look for activities focused on five themes including food, water, energy, waste and biodiversity across campus.
