Planting the Seed: Campus-led Restoration for Biodiversity and Climate Action (E/SI)
April 25, 2023 | 1:45 pm - 2:45 pm
World Wildlife Fund Canada (WWF-Canada) recognizes educational institutions as leaders in achieving national biodiversity and climate goals. Through partnerships with colleges and institutions across Canada, WWF-Canada can build capacity to increase conservation efforts that recover wildlife, fight climate change, and support institutional sustainability goals that engage students, employees and communities. In this session, WWF-Canada and Niagara College will highlight national and global climate and biodiversity goals and outline activities they have collaborated on to address biodiversity loss and climate change while helping to implement action towards institutional sustainability strategies and advance progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Initiatives such as pollinator gardens, native plant seed orchards, and invasive species reduction will illustrate how students, employees and communities have been engaged to build capacity and enhance knowledge and leadership skills in conservation and sustainability.
