WWF-Canada's Living Planet @ Campus
Join WWF-Canada, Western's Sustainability Office and thousands of post-secondary students across Canada in addressing the dual crises of biodiversity loss and climate change, while building your resume.
WWF-Canada's Living Planet @ Campus program helps students bring environmental sustainability and conservation activities to life on their campus and in their lives. Students can participate in different types of group initiatives or self-guided activities to address issues like biodiversity loss and climate change.
Living Planet @ Campus provides opportunities for learning, collaboration and professional development for all students. Students can contribute to positive change through activities like campus clean-ups and Earth Hour, create habitat for wildlife through native plant gardening, and apply for funding to kickstart their own projects that help nature thrive.
Students can also earn WWF-Canada's Living Planet Leader certification, a self-guided designation that can be completed over the course of their post-secondary education. Upon completion of the Living Planet Leader requirements, students receive a WWF-Canada certificate, are listed on the Living Planet @ Campus website, and can include WWF-Canada and the certification on their LinkedIn profile and resume.
