The Sustainability Council is an academic leadership unit promoting and enabling sustainability scholarship at the University of Alberta. We work across all faculties to animate the university's deep pool of interest in sustainability.
Spark learning, discovery and active citizenship for sustainability.

The Sustainability Council is bringing academic staff and students from across disciplines into a central conversation. We create avenues for researchers and instructors to connect, open up learning opportunities for every student at the university, and cultivate active and engaged citizens who are committed to building a better world.

All learners understand how social, economic and environmental dimensions are intertwined in pressing issues of ecological health, global peace, social justice and lasting prosperity. Through vital community connections and active citizenship, our global community thrives in perpetuity.
