Join us for the inaugural event of the Sustainability Circle Series: the Igniting Change Workshop, hosted by Telfer's Sustainability Taskforce as part of SDG Week. This interactive workshop marks the beginning of a collaborative journey towards a greener future. Open to staff, faculty, and students actively involved in our community, this workshop offers a platform to share your ideas, insights, and passion for sustainability. Sustainability, as defined by the Oxford Dictionary of English, is 'the property of being environmentally sustainable; the degree to which a process or enterprise is able to be maintained or continued while avoiding the long-term depletion of natural resources'. Together, we'll explore innovative solutions as we work towards a more sustainable campus community, ensuring that our processes and initiatives align with this definition and contribute to the long-term health of our planet. Don't miss this opportunity to be part of the conversation and shape the sustainable agenda at Telfer and beyond. Snacks and coffee will be served to accompany our discussion. Register now to secure your spot!
