Get Involved

Whether you're a first- or fourth-year student, there are opportunities for you to engage with sustainability during your studies. There are one-time and longer-term volunteer positions available across campus. If you're looking for ways to promote and embed sustainability practices in your daily life, there are resources for that as well!

Stay Informed

We're dedicated to communicating the latest sustainability news, whether it's events or upcoming campaigns happening in the community. The easiest way to get involved with sustainability is to stay informed: 

 Join a Club or Council

Sustainability event

Beyond the Sustainability Office's events and campaigns, student organizations are another great way to get engaged on-campus with sustainability initiatives. The student-run sustainability clubs, councils and associations are always looking for new members to join. From taking part in advocacy work to clean-ups, you'll find a club that suits your interests in sustainability. If you want to get involved, connect with one of the student clubs or councils below!

Be an Innovator

Earth Suds pitch

Since 2015, the Sustainability Office has dedicated up to $30,000 annually to help grow sustainability ideas that benefit the Laurier community (including you) through the Sustainable Hawk Fund (SHF). We want to leverage Laurier’s entrepreneurial and community spirit by engaging students, faculty and staff to integrate sustainability practices into all aspects of student life at Laurier.
