6th Annual Sustainable Campuses Conference 
September 30th to October 3rd - University of Manitoba, Winnipeg

********REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS SEPTEMBER 19, 2004********

The Sierra Youth Coalition invites students, professors, administrators, and 
staff from all universities and colleges to participate in one of the largest 
grassroots campus sustainability forums in North America at the University of 
Manitoba, Winnipeg from September 30th to October 3rd.

About the Sustainable Campuses Conference - About the Sustainable 

The Sustainable Campuses Conference is organized by the Sierra Youth Coalition 
(SYC), the youth arm of the Sierra Club of Canada and the country's largest 
national youth environmental NGO. This gathering aims to support, document and 
promote the efforts of students who are implementing environmental and social 
responsibility projects on their campuses. It also works to strengthen a 
national and growing international network of hundreds of college and 
university students who collaborate in their efforts to make our institutions 
of higher education bastions of sustainability.

To date, the Conference has been hosted by 5 Canadian universities: the 
University of Ottawa (1999), University of Victoria (2000), Dalhousie 
University (2001) University of Waterloo (2002), and McGill University (2003). 
The University of Manitoba in Winnipeg will host this year's conference. 

Conference Goals
1) To build the capacity of conference participants to develop campus 
sustainability initiatives in their schools and communities;
2) To continue building the capacity of returning participants by introducing 
innovative workshops, training, discussions and field trips;
3) To continue supporting and expanding strong, active, student-oriented 
networks regionally, nationally and internationally, and support their 
grassroots campaigns;
4) To introduce and train participants to take part in Canada's most holistic 
Campus Sustainability Assessment.

Conference Agenda - Conference Agenda - Conference Agenda 

The Conference is organized in a forum format that stimulates dialogue between 
the various university and college students and stakeholders, strengthen 
partnerships, maintain and expand the national Sustainable Campuses network,

their campuses. The conference welcomes all students - regardless of their 
familiarity with campus sustainability issues - and offers workshops, hands-on 
activities, keynote speakers, strategizing sessions and field trips suitable 
for all participants.

The main topics to be explored at this year's Sustainable Campuses Conference 
are:

- The Campus Sustainability Assessment Framework (CSAF)
- Campus energy issues and greenhouse gas emission reduction initiatives
- Green buildings 
- Sustainability Policies
- Working with different campuses stakeholders to promote sustainability
- Sustainable transportation
- Environmental Justice
- Sustainability at the Student Union
