The workshops are for the Lakehead University community from both campuses, including all faculty and graduate students.

The RCSC focuses on three core areas: Environmental Sustainability, Political Economy and Social Justice.

Environmental sustainability seeks to sustain global life-support systems by securing sufficient quality of natural resources, ecosystems and species diversity in all aspects of the natural and the human or built environment.

Political economy refers to examining how political and economic forces taken together affect the development of government legislation and policy.

Social justice refers to the belief that communities should be organized to allow for and promote equality, fairness, dignity and solidarity among community members such that all members of the community experience a just and fair society, experiencing equality not just in laws or on paper but also in social outcomes.
