Sustainable NSCC Students: Green Sleeves

This is a guide for students at NSCC interested in making the campus more sustainable and in pursuing an environmental career.

Why teach and learn about sustainability

"Climate, soil, air, water, energy resources, food, fisheries, and biodiversity are all elements of the global commons, and all have prospects that range from uncertain to perilous." - Editorial, Science

"The lack of scientific literacy is helping humans cause a dangerous disruption of the thermal stability of the planet. Students do not understand the threats to our ecosystems that we all depend on for life. Each educator has a unique and important opportunity to help our students understand the need to use knowledge to care for our global commons and help create a sustainable future."
