Green Your World: Going beyond
October 19, 2011 by Luke Kozlowski, Camosun Students for Environmental Awareness
Attention all environmental enthusiasts and activists: do you want to help your campus and your community become more sustainable? Are you interested in developing the skills to be a more effective leader? Do you want to network with students at other schools and find out what they’re doing to promote sustainability?
We all need to take a break from homework. Why not do something fun and productive by coming out for an inspiring day of workshops that will explore sustainability issues and allow you to develop your skill set and collaborate with other bright minds? You’ll be thanking yourself later.
The UVic environmental group Common Energy will be hosting this fantastic event on Friday, October 28 from 6:30-8:30 pm and on Saturday, October 29 from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm. Also known as the goBEYOND Regional Skills Training Summit, it will feature workshops ranging from group facilitation, event/project planning, social media, and video training to team development.
goBEYOND Campus Climate Network is a non-profit environmental advocacy network that aims to build capacity among student groups at postsecondary institutions.
Since universities and colleges are meant to be innovators and leaders in sustainability, these institutions need goBEYOND and students like you and I to come up with the solutions of tomorrow.
Whether it’s establishing a community garden, instituting a composting program, or getting your campus to become Fair Trade certified, we need you and your ideas.
