Acadia Sustainability Week
Acadia Sustainability Week is an annual event held each October to celebrate achievements in sustainability and raise awareness about sustainability issues on campus and in the community. 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 event is organized by the Acadia Sustainability Office in partnership with students and campus and community partners. Past community partners include 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. Watch for the schedule of events at the end of September.
