Student Summit


The Alberta Student Leadership Summit was a 5-day nation-wide leadership conference open to both high school and post-secondary students. All sessions were free and accessible online. The Sustainability Council partnered with Sustain SU to provide daily sustainability streamed sessions covering topics like fair trade, climate refugees, energy and e-waste.

2021 Sustainability Keynotes

Dr. James Makokis and Anthony Johnson from Team Ahkameyimok, the Season 7 winners and first ever Two-Spirit team to compete on Amazing Race Canada. Their inspiring journeys began long before the television cameras started rolling, as revealed in their keynote.

Mike Melross from the Alberta Ecotrust Foundation explained how radically Edmonton will need to change if the world is going to keep global warming to 1.5 °C.

We’re also especially proud of the 3 Minute Thesis session that featured undergrads and graduate students presenting projects close to their hearts.
