Postsecondary institutions unveil environmentally focused initiatives


Several postsecondary institutions across Canada have launched new environmentally focused initiatives. The University of New Brunswick will host the 2023 BOOST: Ideation Camp, which highlights innovative “made-in-Fredericton” design solutions aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The University of Toronto announced a mandatory institutional carbon offsetting program that will collect a fee for every kilometre of air travel funded by U of T and reinvest the funds into sustainability-focused projects. Cambrian College installed 20 new publicly available electric vehicle charger ports to reduce carbon emissions. University of Saskatchewan students in the Enactus club embarked on the Re-Colour project to keep crayons out of the landfill. Students collect and recycle used crayons and repurpose them into art supplies that are donated to inner-city schools, daycares, and shelters in Saskatoon.
