Green Citizen is a public outreach initiative of the Green Citizen Campaign at Seneca College in Toronto, Canada. Seneca College has been a leader in the field of sustainability for years, notably by creating the Centre for the Built Environment in 1996, the first Canadian college department of its kind. At its core is the Green Citizen learning module embedding this environmental imperative within the broader scope of learning, career enhancement, and public commitment as engaged citizens. The Green Citizen describes environmental issues and your individual impact, details the “human-environment” ecological connection, provides commentary from industry leaders on the importance of this knowledge, and examines how an eco appreciation will enhance your career and lifestyle opportunities by contributing to a healthier world.
As part of this campaign, John van Nostrand spoke with Bill Humber on the Boreal Corridor – click here to watch the 12-minute video. More information on the Green Citizen Campaign, including learning modules, handbook and online course can be accessed here.
