The Sustainable Event Certificate (SEC) is a campus initiative founded by Queen’s Backing Action on Climate Change (QBACC) in partnership with the Alma Mater Society. This certification is intended to assist in planning for the most environmentally sound event, while providing incentives and recommendations. Achieving this certification will require individuals to question the purpose of every product used, while also assessing the usefulness of more ecofriendly alternatives.
The Sustainable Student Guide is a document created by the 2020-2021 deputy and intern of the commission, in partnership with the Earth Centre. This guide does an excellent job at providing achievable sustainability goals for students in a clear and concise format.
The Environmental Coalition is a bi-weekly meeting of environmental clubs and groups, to discuss updates and give brief presentations of upcoming projects. Through this, common sustainability issues on campus are explored, and remediation is sought out with the support of the AMS Commissioner of Environmental Sustainability. This coalition promotes conservation education, research and innovation, and acts as a place for advocacy of sustainable university operations. It is an excellent space to discuss individual initiatives, as well as create successful collaborations!
