Living Planet @ Campus Partners

Partnering campuses are helping bring Living Planet @ Campus activities to life.

How We Work with Colleges and Universities

Our partnerships aim to deliver direct conservation results on key issues by aligning organizational practices and operations with WWF-Canada’s priorities. These conservation priorities are designed to reduce major environmental impacts and achieve conservation results that would not otherwise be possible without this collaboration.

Partnering campuses help to bring Living Planet @ Campus to life. Throughout the year, campus partners organize and deliver activities students can get involved in to experience the practice of sustainability.

Supporting Students and Campus Engagement

Campus Partners play a significant role in supporting students and their sustainability initiatives. Partners work closely with WWF-Canada to provide opportunities, provide resources to take action for nature, and support students as they become Living Planet Leaders.

Creating Impact Together

Together with WWF-Canada, Campus Partners help shape and evolve the Living Planet @ Campus program to support student learning outcomes and professional development. Campuses offer the opportunity for students to create conservation impact, which helps us achieve conservation results through collaboration.
