The Lakehead University Office of Sustainability invites you to attend the launch of Lakehead University's first Sustainability Plan, as well as our new outdoor classroom.
The 2019-2024 Sustainability Plan deepens the University's commitment to sustainability. It covers a variety of topics within the institution’s academics, operations, engagement, and planning and administration. The plan was a collective effort, developed by the Office of Sustainability, in collaboration with numerous faculty, staff, students, and community members who sit on the University’s Sustainability Stewardship Council and its Working Groups, as well as with senior administration.
The power to create a more sustainable Lakehead University lies in our collective action. The Office of Sustainability invites the community to celebrate and learn more about the Sustainability Plan at this event and how you can be involved.

This event will also celebrate the launch of the "M'wade Gaazhi Namaadibinaanowin” Outdoor Classroom (Anishinaabemowin for “Where People Sit Down”). This space transformed the Centennial Building Courtyard into an outdoor classroom with four demonstration gardens. This project was co-coordinated and funded by Lakehead University and EcoSuperior Environmental Programs, with additional funding from Depave Paradise of Green Communities Canada, and the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
