Does the institution have an active student group focused on sustainability?:

A brief description of the student group:

Sustainable SFU has been around since 2003 and incorporated as a non-profit organization in December 2009.

Sustainable SFU is a student-run group funded by students.

Sustainable SFU is a student-run campus group created to make real change on campus by giving strength to students’ vision for a sustainable institution. By clarifying and mobilizing student ideas, by engaging the SFU administration, and by building a relationship between the two, we will promote the environmental, social, and economic sustainability of SFU.

Sustainable SFU has created a non-profit organization, the Simon Fraser Sustainability Association (SFSA), for the administration of Sustainable SFU. The SFSA allows us to increase our accountability and our capacity to support student sustainability initiatives.


SustainableSFU is dedicated to…

giving students more direct power in deciding the path SFU should take,

building awareness and momentum to engage students in building campus sustainability,

launching, leading, and coordinating diverse student sustainability initiatives,

supporting student projects for sustainability with our resources,

engaging the SFU administration to implement sustainability at an institutional level,

creating a sustainability network–linking SFU groups and projects to each other, to other campuses and to the broader community,

ensuring the continuity of campus initiatives and campaigns.

Our Vision

We envision a campus community…

where students, faculty, and administration are engaged in creating a culture of sustainability,

where ingenuity, energy, and knowledge are mobilized to improve the environmental, social, and economic impacts of our institution,

and where our initiatives contribute to a broader community movement for a more sustainable future.
