Finding new and creative solutions

At the University of Victoria, we strive to model sustainability -- applying ingenuity to find new and creative solutions and practices that can serve as examples for others.

This website is designed to be a hub for sustainability-related information on the University of Victoria campus. We invite you to explore our green initiatives on the ground, in the classroom and in our research activities. Connect with student groups, learn tips to reduce your impact in the office or lab, and find out how you can get involved.
