We are proud to be the first event to be certified for Sustainability through the SFU Sustainability Office. SFU is dedicated to its strategic vision of being an engaged university, and part of that means that every member of SFU whether student or staff has the opportunity engage in sustainable practices.
For the conference, we have practiced social sustainability as well by conducting our ambassador’s program. The Community Ambassador Program is intended to provide opportunities for capacity building and participation among individuals and communities facing barriers to employment.
We encourage you to follow these sustainable practices during the conference to help us maintain our environment:
- Use the 4-stream Zero Waste Stations to minimize landfill waste.
- Walk or transit to the conference locations. If you are local, consider walking, transiting, biking, or carpooling.
- Use the hot/cold beverage bottles and water refill stations.
- Check out our exhibitors and vendors at Community Square on May 3rd and 4th. Vendors and Exhibitors have been carefully selected practice social sustainability.
