Nova Scotia Community College
ER-T2-6: Sustainability Events
Facilities & Engineering
Does the institution hold major events related to sustainability, such as conferences, speaker series, or symposia, that have students as the intended audience?:
A brief description of the event(s):
Each year the Festival of Learning is organized by a team of employees and students who volunteer their time and expertise as participants, presenters and event volunteers. This truly is a community-led event and owes its success to each participating member of our community. Topics such as sustainability are discussed in many forms such as luncheons, learning markets, showcases, college portfolios, and chats. In these sessions, participants share their unique learning experiences within the NSCC Community and knowledge and expertise is shared.
Additionally, the CaGBC and NSCC have hosted Green Build Atlantic for the past four years at the Waterfront Campus’ Centre for the Built Environment, located in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Staff, students, and members of the community attend this function each year. At the conference there are guest speakers, trades shows, and presentations on products focused on sustainability. More information about this conference can be found at http://buildgreenatlantic.org/.
