UofG Sustainability

Sustainability Ambassador Program

A half-acre native pollinator meadow. 
A pop-up shop where you can donate old clothes and build a new outfit, for free. 
A community reusable bag sharing program. 
A sustainable fashion show with all local designers.  

What do these initiatives have in common? Through a shared vision for a sustainable future, students at the University of Guelph brought these ideas to life.  

Students are using the University of Guelph campus as a “living laboratory” to cultivate our sustainability culture and improve campus life.  

The University of Guelph has always been at the forefront of community-led research, and the research and testing being conducted by our Sustainability Ambassadors right here on campus is no exception of that. 

Our students learn to develop, scale, and lead solution-oriented projects that target many of today’s most pressing sustainability issues – climate change, fast fashion, waste management, and biodiversity loss.  

This student-powered, student-led program is developing the next generation of sustainability leaders who are trained in effectively communicating issues, experienced in project management, and understand how to target root causes.
