Change begins with an idea
Have you successfully launched a creative initiative or project on campus? Can your idea be brought to life at other campuses? If you want to make an impact on sustainability and build your resume as a leader, innovator or problem-solver, we can help you help others follow in your footsteps.
The impact of students
Peer-to-peer learning is such a powerful tool to create change. And where better to do that than at university or college, those multi-disciplinary hothouses for learning and exploring new opportunities?
With approximately 280 Canadian post-secondary institutions and over 2.5 million students filled with ingenuity, creativity and energy to fuel transformative ideas, we can transition to a more sustainable world.
Resources for students by students
Share your experience and model of success with WWF for the opportunity to help develop and author a how-to resource on your concept. Idea proposals can also include activities not yet implemented but that you think will be an effective tool for shaping the student experience of sustainability or conservation. The options are limitless and your efforts will contribute to lasting change.
If your idea is chosen for development by WWF, your activity guide will be featured on the Living Planet @ Campus website.
How it works
Submit your concept using our online form. Submissions are accepted anytime during the year.
