Read Student Testimonial

"I learned so much about my field. The meaning of ‘sustainability’ is very different from what I had going into this program."- Priscilla, Sustainability Peer Educator 2017 - 2018

"The biggest takeaway from my experience as a Peer Educator is that being an advocate for the environment also involves being an advocate for other issues. Such as decolonization, global inequality, and waste. I also learned that there are so many ways to get involved with environmental issues. There are ways to bring forward issues in media, many non-profits, and protesting on the front lines. The knowledge I have gained, and learning of ways to help, inspire me to take initiative." Angela, Sustainability Peer Educator 2017 - 2018

"I have learned so much in the weekly workshops. Each workshop I learned new things about current issues or about myself. [...] My biggest takeaway would have to be the importance of decolonization and reconciliation and learning about it." Nikki, Sustainability Peer Educator 2017 - 2018
