1 comment :
The University of Alberta’s Green Spaces Certification Program is designed to help UA community members integrate sustainable practices in their campus offices, labs, events and living spaces in residence.  The Workshop for Instruction in Library Use, commonly known as WILU, is a certified Gold event and will take place May 23-25, 2017 at Lister Hall.

Key actions taken by the WILU Conference Team to make this event sustainable include:

  • development of a conference app and use of recycled name tag holders to reduce paper waste
  • running the event on Bullfrog Power to reduce emissions and support renewable energy 
  • reduction of waste through in-house composting and recycling
  • communication of sustainability, accessibility and inclusive features of the event to participants leading up to the conference
  • donation to the Alberta Reads, a provincial children's literacy network, in lieu of speaker gifts
