Making Queen's more green


Making campus more environmentally friendly and holding the Alma Mater Society (AMS) accountable to its sustainability goals is the priority for AMS sustainability coordinator Jodi Rempel.

She is working with the Sierra Club of Canada – one of the country’s oldest environmental groups – to share her passion with fellow students at Canadian universities. The Sierra Youth Coalition (SYC) is Canada's only national environmental youth network and is the youth branch of the Sierra Club of Canada. Since 1999, the coalition has hosted a conference that helps improve sustainability initiatives at campuses across Canada. This year’s event takes place at Queen’s.

“I’ve attended this conference in the past and was inspired by the leadership, dedication, and passion of youth working to create change on their campuses in regards to environmental sustainability and social justice,” says Ms Rempel.

Ms Rempel feels the green movement is strong at Queen’s. Students have dozens of environmental organizations to join on campus if they want to make the world a little greener.
