Ongoing: Campus as Living Labs (CLL) Opportunities

Campus as a Living Lab (CLL) aims to involve students in the operations of the university. Student can be engaged in a variety of ways to work on CLL projects with operations staff. One example is a course, ENV461/1103, taught by Professor John Robinson, where a variety of departments at U of T act as clients for an upper year course to create and work on projects with students, giving them experience with real-world sustainability projects on campus. More ways for students to engage with CLL projects will be created by the CECCS and will be made available on this webpage.

Closed: Adams Sustainability Champion Internships

These internships provide exceptional students or recent graduates (undergraduate or graduate) with an opportunity to contribute to sustainability in a powerful way. The goal is to leverage them as future leaders in sustainability and to promote important knowledge dissemination and exchange. The chosen interns are employed in the summer to work full-time on CLL projects and tasks supporting the CECCS, and to travel to another university with a strong sustainability focus to build links, study their practices, and share ideas between the two universities.  Interns will produce a report and give a presentation summarizing the outcomes of their work. They will also be encouraged to share their experiences through social media in order to reach a wider audience.

Please visit the social media accounts below to learn about the visits to partnering universities and  experience of the Summer 2019 and 2020 Interns:
