Hello world!

Well we’re doing it – we’re joining the world of blogging! While we may still play around with the format and how we go about this blogging, I think that it’s time that SYCers start chronicling our thoughts, impressions and experiences from our sustainability work here in the cyberspace to share with those of you interested in knowing. We’ll also use this space as a place for the most up-to-date information about events and the SYC  Sustainable High School and Sustainable Campuses programs.

Exciting. Now for more neat news – and the impetus to set up the blog pronto. As I (Tracey Guptill) move from overall communications and outreach into the job of re-focussing our Sustainable Campuses Program I’ll be headed out into the field visiting campuses from Vancouver to Toronto during the month of December – and beyond in 2011.

I’ll be in Vancouver to help lay the ground-work for our 2011 Western regional Sustainable Campuses Conference! It’s going to be a good one as we’re working with GoBeyond, the UBC Common Energy Group and their dialogue team who will be organzing in partnership with their annual NOW! conference. There will also be plenty of other incredible folks involved bringing their lens from the great work being done all across campus. There’s so much happening at UBC that it will be an excellent opportunity for us to showcase what can be done, and to envision where we need to go now. On the way home for Christmas,  I’ll be stopping in Edmonton, Saskatoon and Winnipeg – with potential visits to Toronto and Kingston. I’m interested in meeting those of you working for sustainability in your school communities and learning about how you’re working with other communities to make a profound impact. Let me know if you want to meet up! (national@syc-cjs.org)

Here’s the itinerary:

Vancouver – December 6 to December 9th
Edmonton – Decomber 12 and 13th
Saskatoon – December 14 and 15th
Winnipeg – December 17 to 19th

I’ll also make brief stops in Toronto and Kingston on the 21st and will have time to visit a campus or have a brainstorm meeting!
