Recommendations made to Okanagan College Executive

by okanagancollegesustainability
Your sustainability team has been hard at work.  Our first two mandates were to
  • come up with an action list for short-term, inexpensive and easy-to-implement changes to make the college more sustainable
  • recommend an organizational structure that will enable the creation of a long-term sustainability plan

Throughout March, we held open houses and conducted an extensive survey of OC students and staff.  Then specialty groups rated and ranked ideas to come up with a feasible, high-impact list of action steps. At the end of March, we were proud to present a document, Our Short-term Action Plan for Sustainable Change, to Okanagan College President Jim Hamilton. Since then, we have also presented to the college executive and leadership team.  Our recommendations will be presented to the Board of Governors in May.

In the meanwhile, our work hasn’t stopped. We have worked on a recommended administrative structure for Okanagan College’s sustainability, and will be presenting that to our President at the end of the month.

We’ll keep you informed about our project, and share the recommendations and  projects when they have been fully approved.
