WHY CAMPUSES PARTNER WITH WWF-CANADA
The latest United Nations report on climate declared a “code red” for nature and humanity. WWF-Canada’s conservation goals are bold, because they have to be. To meet them, we need what the UN calls a “whole-of-society” approach. Together, we will fearlessly and relentlessly work to reverse the “code red.”
WWF-Canada supports campuses in achieving shared conservation and engagement priorities by mobilizing students and campus staff to take action, no matter their academic program or area of focus.
WWF-Canada provides Campus Partners with how-to and promotional resources, our conservation and engagement expertise, and mobilization tools including the Living Planet Leader student certification to bring the Living Planet @ Campus program to life. As we work together to fight climate change and biodiversity loss, WWF-Canada celebrates and recognizes the impacts achieved by our Campus Partners through our communications channels and our WWF-Canada Living Campus certification.
