Solutions: A Sustainability Network
Solutions is a growing coalition of people and organizations working toward a common vision as a catalyst of sustainable initiatives at Vancouver Island University. Questions we focus on: “how can we do more to prevent climate change than we do to cause it?”; “How can I enjoy sustainable living and have a better life?”
“We cultivate a campus community that practices and celebrates living sustainably in connection with the wider community.”
We are passionate about teaching, learning and creating awareness through FUN direct action!
