Jennifer Foster, professor in the Faculty of Environmental Studies and chair of the new Task Force on Sustainability Research, invites members of the York community to submit expressions of interest to join the new Task Force on Sustainability Research.
“We are eager to support the development of initiatives that will help continue to build the recognition of the University as a Canadian leader in sustainability research,” said Foster. “Members of the York community are invited to submit expressions of interest to join the Task Force on Sustainability Research as we work together to continue to build and strengthen this important area of research at York.”
The mandate of the Task Force on Sustainability Research is to:
- provide feedback and recommendations to help strengthen and advance the concentration of sustainability research at York;
- provide strategic advice that represents broader community interests and becomes a conduit for action within the community; and,
- provide feedback and recommendations through a final report that will be released to the York community to stimulate engagement and action.
