Sustainability Seminar Series

The sustainability seminar series provides opportunities for staff and students to make a positive impact on our campus and our city through learning and sharing knowledge on sustainability. The seminars explore a range of topics with short presentations from academics, researchers, professional support staff and colleagues from across the city. There will be time afterwards for informal discussion and engagement. To receive notifications of the seminars sign up to the series listserv.
