Research and Teaching

The University of Alberta's research community is actively discovering solutions that integrate ecological renewal with social resilience and economic prosperity. The Sustainability Council acts to network these efforts, to give them higher visibility and ensure they are well resourced.

We are building an interdisciplinary community of academics who are integrating sustainability into their teaching and research, and who are seeking venues to connect with like-minded academics.

To join the community and get our latest updates, please join our Sustainability Affiliate Network.

  • All academic staff (including faculty, instructors, adjuncts, post-doctoral fellows and librarians) are welcome to join.
  • There is no cost.
  • There is no obligation beyond what you want to contribute.
