Keeping you posted

- February 28, 2011

Dalhousie University is becoming a strong leader in the area of sustainability. We have so many exciting sustainability-related groups, programs, and events that it can be difficult to keep track of them all!
To keep you informed of the latest sustainability news on campus, the College of Sustainability, the Dalhousie Office of Sustainability, and the DSU Sustainability Office have collaborated to create the Sustainability News @ Dal blog. This blog is designed to be a one-stop shop for sustainability-related information at Dalhousie which includes news about upcoming events, green job and internship opportunities, conferences and programs, contests, opinion pieces, travel posts, and occasionally even delicious recipes with local and healthy ingredients!
Wondering what to do this summer? Consider applying to the SOIL Apprenticeship Program or the Sierra Youth Coalition. Looking for a good recipe for dinner tonight? Check out this Yam and Corn Chowder recipe that will brighten any winter evening. Curious about what it is like to live in an eco-village in Iceland? Find out more about this experience by reading this travel post by fourth year Dalhousie student, Will Horne. Want to hear some inspiring lectures? The College of Sustainability is offering a great line up of Thursday night lectures this winter.
Please consider subscribing to the blog by email or by RSS in your favourite feed reader to get the updates delivered to you immediately. You can do this by clicking on one of the links in the upper right hand corner of the blog as illustrated by the screen capture image. If you sign up by email you will receive a single email each morning containing all the posts published the day before. It is an easy way to keep informed of all sustainability-related news on campus.
We are also looking for student, staff and faculty contributions to the blog. If you would like to submit an article about a sustainability issue, event, experience, class project, society etc., which would be of interest to the Dalhousie community, please email your submission to
