Does the institution make available training and/or other professional development opportunities in sustainability to all staff at least once per year?:

A brief description of the sustainability trainings and professional development opportunities available to staff :

SFU provides sustainability training opportunities to staff through the SFU Sustainability Ambassadors program. Staff are provided with monthly networking and educational sessions around campaigns each semester. Each campaign focuses on tangible sustainability actions, as well as training and communication techniques on culture change. The Ambassadors are encouraged to support colleagues in making sustainable choices (in and outside the workplace) with skills and resources to do so. Past training has included presentations and information from SFU's composting and recycling contractors, on communicating the concept of sustainability, on integrating sustainability in to everyday work choices through our Green Office program, and on green event planning.
