Sustainability Week


UTERN’s 2020 sustainability campaign was based on the theme of environmental action and ran from November 23rd to November 27th, 2020.

As part of our 5 days of environmental action, we collaborated with student activists, community organizers and researchers to organize a 5-day virtual workshop series that promoted practical, tangible ways for students to participate in environmental action campaigns remotely. It included raffle prizes, guest speakers, and hands-on environmental action modules and was open to all UofT students.
