The Campus Climate Challenge (C3) is an inter-university competition to reduce energy use and promote sustainable living habits.
From January 23 to February 6, 2015, six Maritime universities will be competing to reduce their carbon footprints for honour, glory and bragging rights.
Eco-Action is an environmentally minded group of students at Mount Allison University who meet to discuss issues, ideas, and events both on and off campus that are of interest to members and the larger community.
From campus-centred endeavours such as promoting reusable mug use to sharing information about province-wide environmental conferences, Eco-Action exists to allow students to come together and find ways to lessen the environmental impact both internally as a club and externally within the greater community. Mount Allison's Campus Climate Challenge began in 2006/07 and has evolved over the past few years to an event that reaches out to students of all different backgrounds, not only those for whom sustainability is at the forefront of their everyday lives.
The Challenge is on within universities and between them. In January and February, residences at various campus across Atlantic Canada will work to reduce their energy consumption by doing things such as turning off the lights, hanging clothes to dry, etc.
