UTERN encourages all student-led groups across the three campuses to participate in our annual EcoFest. It is an opportunity for student groups to showcase their initiatives, draw attention to issues they are passionate about, and connect with the environmental community at Uoft. We also offer additional funding for EcoFest events.

The theme theme for 2022 is “Emphasizing Environmental Equity”. We hope to create a space where groups can highlight the many ways environmentalism can exclude, adversely affect, or be unattainable to certain groups. This will be an opportunity to share ideas about achieving environmental equity on an individual and institutional level.
