Welcome to the Lakehead Sustainability Website!

  Lakehead University Sustainability Facebook Page

This website serves as a platform to connect you to all things sustainability-related on campus, including programs, initiatives, and research. 

Sustainability is a diverse, global movement in society, economics, environment, and in higher education. At Lakehead University, sustainability is being considered in a pluralistic and inclusive way, encompassing human and ecological health, social justice and equity, Indigenous rights, secure livelihoods, workplace well-being, and leadership for vibrant and resilient communities. 

Within Lakehead University sustainability takes a key role in all areas of the university including: 

  • Academics 
  • Engagement
  • Operations
  • Planning and Administration 

Building a sustainable university means engaging in a culture shift--where all levels of the University including senior administration, faculty, staff, as well as students, work collaboratively together to find innovative solutions to one of the greatest challenges of our times.
