Laurentian to join Nature Positive University Alliance


Laurentian University has announced that it will be joining the Nature Positive University Alliance (NPUA) in celebration of Earth Day. NPUA supports nature restoration at 128 universities around the world, including four in Ontario. As a first step of joining the alliance and becoming “Nature Positive,” Laurentian will complete a baseline study of its campus’ biodiversity with clear actions and transparent reporting. “The Nature Positive University Alliance is an initiative that will form a major contribution to the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration,” said Anastacia Chartrand, Chair of the Laurentian University Environmental Sustainability Committee. “It will also allow us to uphold Laurentian’s existing environmental legacy and make even greater contributions to ecosystem restoration.”
