Become a certified Living Planet Leader through WWF’s new campus program

Posted on Thursday, September 20th, 2018

World Wildlife Fund Canada is inviting University of Guelph students to join the Living Planet @ Campus program, which promotes sustainability and certifies students as Living Planet Leaders.

The program aims to enhance a culture of sustainability and promote the protection of nature by engaging post-secondary students in meaningful actions.

The Living Planet @ Campus program is a digital tool that allows all students to track their impact and connect with peers. It includes guides on leading activities on campus, such as cleanups or awareness campaigns, and enables students to apply for funding to lead their own conservation projects. Students can learn more about the program and sign up on the LP@C website.

The Living Planet Leader certification can be a beneficial addition to student resumes and demonstrates to employers that they have the skills and experiences to move the needle on sustainability. Details on the certification can be found on the Living Planet Leader website.

“Canada’s environmental footprint is among the biggest in the world, fuelling climate change and unprecedented wildlife loss,” says Sarah Winterton, director of nature-connected communities at WWF-Canada. “Imagine if we could harness the power of millions of post-secondary students in Canada to turn that around? Our Living Planet @ Campus program provides students with opportunities to take action on sustainability, be leaders for nature and earn certification to take into the professional world when they graduate.”
