Each year, students can participate in a variety of environmental projects related to habitat restoration, environmental education or community gardens.

By getting involved, you’ll:

  • Work in an interdisciplinary team (students from different faculties and departments working together)
  • Set an individual leadership goal and work towards it
  • Work with a community partner to implement a project, which will help you gain project management experience
  • Deepen your knowledge and understanding of an environmental issue that interests you
