As a founding member of UTERN, TUGS is excited to announce the first UTERN 
Annual General Meeting since UTERN became a grant-giving body earlier this 
year. Come and find out how to apply for grants, take part in the election and 
mix and mingle with friends and fellow students afterward. Food and 
refreshments will be served. More information below.


Throughout their academic careers, university students generate many ideas for 
environmental projects but can be discouraged due to lack of funding. Now with 
UTERN, they will have help. The University of Toronto Environmental Resource 
Network (UTERN), newly established in 2003 as the first of its kind in Canada, 
is a grant-giving body that funds student-initiated environment-related events 
and projects.

On 2 October 2003 UTERN will host its Annual General Meeting at Innis Town Hall 
from 4:30-6:00pm. David Stonehouse, Executive Director of the prominent Toronto 
environmental organization Evergreen Foundation, will deliver a keynote address 
at the inaugural event. Items also on the agenda will include the by-election 
and an official launch of the new UTERN website. Immediately following the 
meeting attendees will enjoy a free reception with food, drink and live music.
UTERN is a student-run organization established to provide student groups at 
all three University of Toronto campuses with the opportunity to develop 
partnerships within the community to achieve environmental goals. UTERN ensures 
funds are directed toward projects and activities initiated by students, and 
enables them to make a significant contribution to the University community and 
the environment. This organization is vital to maintaining the integrity of 
University of Toronto environmental policies on campus and allowing all 
students to benefit from a socially-responsible, environmentally-active, and 
sustainable university community.
