Sustain SU

Together We Can Make A World of Difference!

We are a service of the University of Alberta Students’ Union (SU) that provides peer-to-peer learning and support for all undergraduate students to incorporate sustainability into every aspect of their university experience. This includes providing sustainability-based services to the entire campus community, as well as opportunities to facilitate change on a larger scale.

Volunteer with Sustain SU!

Our volunteer positions are currently OPEN!

Apply for our Sustainability Ambassador (SA) position! Sustainability Ambassadors are the driving force of Sustain SU initiatives. As an SA you will be putting yourself in new situations, meeting new people, building a community and creating growth in all areas of your abilities. You are responsible to commit a minimum of five (5) hours per month to the SA program.


The Sustain SU Leadership Team (LT) works hard to develop fun and meaningful opportunities for the rest of the Sustain SU volunteers and the campus community. It's also a fantastic opportunity for you to develop your own leadership skills. As an LT member, you'll have the opportunity to co-manage a Sustain SU project and lead a team of project volunteers (known as the Sustainability Ambassadors).

Student Sustainability Summit

How can we help students mind the gap between the unsustainable present and the viable future we are working towards? At the 2020 Student Sustainability Summit, post-secondary youth from across the province will confront issues in the present, envision the future we want, and learn from people who are already bridging the gap. We invite you to join our workshops, panels and presentations that tackle the following themes!

This year's Theme: Mind the Gap

When: Saturday, February 1, 2020
