Mission Statement: As youth and global citizens, Concordia University students are striving to ensure that our common future will be a prosperous one. We seek to better ecological and social systems by allocating resources to sustainable development at Concordia, with the aspiration of our actions in Montreal resounding globally.
History: The Sustainability Action Fund was founded through the 1% Campaign at the Less Talk, More Action Youth Summit held in March 2007. At this event, Dr. David Suzuki and former United States Vice-President Mr. Al Gore galvanized the crowd of over 2000 Concordia students to vote ‘yes’ on a referendum question that sought to transform Concordia into one of the most sustainable campuses in Canada. Through this referendum, the Sustainability Action Fund was born.
Since its beginning, the Action Fund has given out $400,000 towards student projects that encourage a sustainable cultural shift throughout the Concordia Community.
The Sustainability Action Fund is governed by a board of directors, which is made up of representatives from across all faculties, including both graduate and undergraduate members.
