Imagine That: The Power of Experimenting & The 2012 Western Sustainable Campuses Conference

Sustainability is in many ways at its deepest core an idea: the possibility of a civilization that lives in harmony with the world, that flourishes, restores, and sustains life. Learning how to experiment, to imagine some new idea, some possibility, and then testing out your idea, bringing it into being, is then essential to innovating towards this imagined state.

The 2012 Western Canada Sustainable Campuses Conference proposes to do just that: to bring together inspired and inspiring students, faculty, administrators, staff and community members at Simon Fraser University in beautiful Burnaby, BC for four days of exploration, questioning, connecting and imagining just what a sustainable campus really looks and feels like, and the projects and ideas that are transforming Canadian campuses and challenging Canadian society. Presentations and panel discussions will compliment facilitated dialogue and skill building sessions and inspiring keynotes. Delicious food and open space technology will fuel us and help us connect and share our thoughts, hopes and dreams. If you’ve got an amazing project you’re excited to share, sign up for the Thursday night Pecha Kucha session, or a speaker you’d like to hear, contact the conference team at

Best of all, registration is only $60 and SYC can help you get there in comfort on VIA Rail, our trusted transportation partner. Visit the conference website for full details and to register, and we’ll see you in Vancouver next month!

The conference is presented in partnership with Sustainable SFU and Go Beyond.
