Staff Sustainability Network

The Staff Sustainability Network creates a platform for sustainability leaders from all departments and faculties to come together and collaborate on green solutions for the UVic campus. Interdisciplinary leadership allows for transformative and holistic approaches to sustainability initiatives.

In the past, the Staff Sustainability Network has run the Dump and Run campaign for the residence move out, the shake and fold campaign for paper towel usage, the holiday device shutdown campaign, and the printwise campaign.

If you are interested in becoming a part of the network, please email and ask to be included in our NEW Microsoft Teams Team. Get in on the Climate Action!
