Adams Sustainability Celebration

Adams Sustainability Celebration Banner

Hosted by the Committee on the Environment, Climate Change, and Sustainability (CECCS), the Adams Sustainability Celebration is a tribute to the growing community of sustainability-minded students, faculty, and staff at the University of Toronto (U of T).  The purpose of the event series is to celebrate successes, inspire new activities, build relationships, and collaboratively deepen campus engagement around sustainability. We would like to acknowledge our progress, envision our future, and celebrate sustainability at U of T with you! This event was made possible by the generous donation from Wendy Adams.

MScSM and UTM are happy to support and take part in this inaugrial celebration! Please be sure to visit the Adams Sustainability Website for more information on the fantastic programming. Learn more about:
