Are you passionate about environmental and sustainability issues? Do you want to take action but don’t know where to start?
We’ve partnered with World Wildlife Fund Canada to deliver the Living Planet @ Campus (LP@C) program. Through LP@C, you can take meaningful action to protect the environment—and earn credit at the same time.
George Brown students, no matter their area of study, can become WWF Living Planet Leaders by demonstrating their commitment to sustainability at home, on campus, in the community and during work placements. Living Planet Leaders can include the certification on their
resumes and LinkedIn, earn co-curricular credits, and will be listed on WWF’s Living Planet @ Campus website. One of the goals of the program is to instil the knowledge of how to champion sustainability
in the workplace, a skill many employers are looking for.
Students must complete requirements in four categories to become a Living Planet Leader:
- Campus, community or global volunteerism
Personal application of sustainability
Application of sustainability in academics
Leadership and teamwork
George Brown future Living Planet Leader, Joe Kiran Perez, a student in the Supply Chain and Operation Management program, says he’s learned a lot about applying sustainability within his program and has expanded his professional network. Using experiences
and initiatives available to him on campus, he's working towards completing his certification.
"I'm actively involved with the George Brown Sustainability Squad and have expanded my network to students from different programs and different campuses,” he said. “It’s interesting to sit in a room and brainstorm ideas to encourage the student body
to 'think green' with students from different programs because we see things from other perspectives as well."
