We have implemented a Zero Waste initiative at Capilano U - Check out what we've introduced around campus!
During the 2016/17 school year, the CapU Works team embraced 3 new student organizers (Tessa, Mara and Katelyn) who work on sustainability initiatives on campus. All three organizers are working together under the umbrella of Cap U Works and many of the campus projects will be better served by this broad base collective. We are excited to be hiring four new student organizers for the 2017/18 school year. Find our more information on their page!
In addition to attending monthly EarthWorks/CapUWorks team meetings, these students act as catalysts who bring energy, support for the team, and the vision to challenge the program to evolve and increase behavioral change and action on campus. They seek to engage other students with the campus and external community. The organizers are also encouraged to network with environmental organizations, arts based organizations, performance artists, policy makers, and leaders and experts in sustainable change-making to bring a richness of views and opinions to the series. Over the course of the school year, this group will continue to plan and deliver events that educate and inspire.
