Get involved

There are a variety of ways you can get involved with sustainability on campus.

Be a part of the student movement:

Environment and Sustainability Committee: A committee within the UNB Student Union that works to create campus wide initiatives surrounding sustainability and the environment and discusses ways UNB can improve to become a greener campus.

Artzone Water Campaign: ArtZone is a home base available to students who are interested in creating art. Every year for World Water Day, ArtZone hosts a special exhibit to raise awareness to environmental issues that relate to water conservation.
