Community-Engaged Learning

Living with Climate Change, a Student-Led Learning Series

All students are welcome!

Join other students for a multi-modal, multi-faceted month-long event centred around resilience, mitigation, adaptation and hope amidst climate change.

Connect with students from across campus in five separate events culminating in an Exhibition of climate change-related art, a Roundtable Cafe and lunch, and a Field Trip centred around the question of how you live with climate change and the various ways we can work together during these times.

For participants who enter in the Exhibit, win a chance for a $50 OneCard!
