Call for participation: OCAD U Sustainability Forum March 7, 2018

Over a catered lunch, the OCAD U Sustainability Forum 2018 expands space to nourish ideas around sustainability. Students, staff, and faculty are invited to present their work, research, and visions for sustainability/ environmental justice!

Last year, the Forum provided a space for biophilic design; spoken word and song, urban agriculture as social enterprise, responsible textiles and dyes, OCAD U best practices, and systems thinking games.  Sustainability includes all of us!
This year, let's investigate the ‘tipping point’. What is the tipping point that spurs action in our own behaviours, as an institution, and beyond?

When: March 7, 2018, 1pm-4pm
Where: 100 McCaul St., Great Hall

Interested to join as a presenter, lead a workshop, host a group game? Contact Victoria Ho, Sustainability Coordinator, Office of Diversity, Equity & Sustainability Initiatives (ODSEI) at vho@ocadu.ca by February 12.

The Sustainability Forum is supported by the OCAD U Sustainability Committee.
