ABOUT US

 

Who We Are

The University of Toronto Environmental Action (UTEA) is made up of students from across the university who are working together for increased awareness of the environmental challenges that we all face. We are building a coalition of students representing every discipline on the St. George campus who are concerned with the state of our environment and the way it is being abused to the detriment of other species and future generations. No matter how you look at it, the world’s natural systems are under great stress, and as young people it’s imperative we begin to speak out and take action.

What We Do

UTEA raises awareness about pressing environmental issues (e.g Indigenous water rights, sustainable energy, climate change, etc) and advocates for more effective government policies to address these issues at the federal, provincial, and municipal levels. The organization also works towards advocating for more sustainable campus policies at the University of Toronto. UTEA is unique in that it is a hub for innovative and interdisciplinary environmental research and sustainability advocacy solutions, and is open to all and any interested UofT students.
