Since then, the Sustainability Coordinator, Environmental Council, Eco-Rep team, Campus Services, Department of Environmental Studies and UNE community have rallied efforts to improve the campus sustainability programs, reduce our carbon footprint and communicate the importance of promoting healthier planet!
