How the network works
Keep in touch: Affiliates receive a newsletter including upcoming opportunities for funding, collaboration and opportunities to be involved with Sustainability Council programs. The newsletter also shares newly released resources, such as tools to help instructors introduce sustainability into their courses, organize an e-conference, and respectfully engage with Indigenous research.
Network: Our programming provides space for academic staff to interact, especially with colleagues from other disciplines. Regularly scheduled meet-and-greets, as well as our lecture series are designed to stimulate discussion and facilitate new avenues for collaboration.
Inform: Affiliates can inform the direction of sustainability teaching and research at the University of Alberta by providing input to the Sustainability Council. We will also circulate opportunities for affiliates to provide their professional expertise to public consultations and roundtables.
Publicity: The Sustainability Council is raising the profile of sustainability research, and affiliates will have the opportunity to be featured in articles, videos and social media with an audience across the university. Our venues are also available to share the latest publications, news appearances, and opinion-editorials from University of Alberta experts.
