WWF Living Planet @ Campus

The Living Planet @ Campus is a project led by World Wildlife Fund Canada (WWF Canada) in partnership with Carlton Sustainability. WWF Canada is the largest international conservation organization in the country that is actively working towards reversing the decline of wildlife.

About Living Planet @ Campus

Living Planet @ Campus allows students to take meaningful actions to protect the environment and improve sustainability practices within their own lives and on campus. The program offers a number of opportunities to build their resume and contribute to positive change, such as community clean-ups, earth hour and grant funding. Through the program, students can also earn WWF’s new Living Planet at Leader designation, which is a self-guided certification.

The Living Planet Leader is a self-guided program that allows students, including those at Carleton, the flexibility to choose initiatives that are meaningful to them while building the skills and experiences needed in the field of sustainability.
