Purpose

The purpose of this event is to promote the social, environmental and economic aspects of sustainability and to encourage students to adopt sustainable practices in their daily lives. This year, our goal is to engage on issues that students may be less familiar with and to promote new or innovative methods to practicing sustainability. The fair is an interdisciplinary and intersectional event that will showcase businesses, organizations and student groups aiming to build a more equitable, livable and inclusive community.
