With a new school year beginning QBACC is once again working to create action against climate change

In the past we have organized events involving garbage collection, workshops and many more. However, this year we are beginning to run a volunteer program to do more than ever before.

 

With this upcoming election young voters need to make sure that their voices and concerns are heard. This campaign is centered on ensuring that people are registered to vote in this upcoming federal election. We also provide people with the resources to see each parties platform and their environmental policy.

 

The divestment campaign entails enacting a policy change which would stop the university’s ability to invest in fossil fuel companies. This worthy campaign has already been supported by 16 faculties and more are expected to join. Despite the success and the support of the approximately 800 people who attended our Divestment march held in March last year, Queen’s administration has yet to cease their investment in fossil fuel companies. This year the rally will be held on September 27th, 2019, the same day as when the board of trustees meet to discuss how they will invest Queen’s students tuition.

 

On September 12th, 2019 we hosted an orientation and training event for any new volunteers so that they would be able to answer any questions people may have about sustainability. We plan to have tables set up in the ARC throughout the week to garner support for our campaigns.

If you are interested in volunteering with QBACC be sure to join our General Member Page on Facebook.
