Description

York University Campus Services & Business Operations, Sustainability@YorkU, and WWF-Canada invite you to join us for a Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup of York University's Keele Campus on Thursday October 19, 2017.

Did you know that approximately 80% of ocean plastic originates on land? At this rate, it's estimated there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050.

By rolling up our sleeves we can make a positive impact, stopping litter in its tracks before it can get into our lakes, rivers, and beyond. Together, we can help make our habitats healthier and safer for all living things.

Registration opens at 2pm at the pavilion between Stong Pond and the Bergeron Centre. Snacks, prizes and cleanup supplies will be available, as well as opportunities for pictures with the WWF panda mascot. Come out for as much time as you can spare. In as little as 20 minutes, you can make a huge impact on reducing litter on campus.

See you there!




About Sustainability at York University

Sustainability has a long history at York University. In 1968, York established a Faculty of Environmental Studies, a first in Canada, which focused on an interdisciplinary approach to environmental studies and planning. Since that time, many other faculties within the university have included sustainability within their curriculum. Outside of the classroom, our Energy Management Program, ZeroWaste program, and other initiatives in green building, food, grounds and transportation have achieved impressive results. Our community of students, staff, and faculty is committed to a holistic and equitable approach to taking action that recognizes the full consequences and benefits of what we do. Our long-term perspective recognizes our responsibility to be innovators and to continually work as a community to reduce our ecological impact.
