The United Nations climate change conference is underway in Glasgow, Scotland, until November 12. Acadia's president and vice-chancellor, Dr. Peter Ricketts, is attending and will lead two panel discussions on the role of oceans.
November is sustainable development goals month at Acadia. In 2015 the United Nations Member States adopted 17 ambitious sustainable development goals as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The Acadia Sustainability Office developed a new waste management guide for students living off-campus. For many students managing waste in off-campus housing can be confusing. This new guide has information for renters, a sorting guide, tips for moving, FAQs, local contacts and more. Visit the Waste Management webpage for the guide and other useful information.
