ImpAct-Climate raises awareness about greenhouse gases and encourages behaviour change to reduce emissions in the college and institute sector. We connect and mobilize college and institute leaders, sharing the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to combat climate change and its impacts.

By using the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a framework for collaboration, we give colleges and institutes the opportunity to work together towards a common goal, to learn from each other, and maximize the impact of Canada’s largest post-secondary network.

  1. We empower college and institute students, faculty, and staff to act through on-campus awareness campaigns.
  2. We showcase real examples of net-zero and sustainable design and share best practices for green college and institute campus infrastructure.
  3. We turn college and institute campuses into living labs that demonstrate ways to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.
