Candice has worked to incorporate sustainability at Augustana Campus into teaching, community outreach and operations for many years.

On April 20, 2012, in celebration of Earth Day, members of the campus community were recognized for their outstanding contributions towards advancing sustainability at the University of Alberta. The awards were presented at a luncheon with members of the Office of Sustainability’s Sustainability Advisory Committee, senior administrators, and sustainability representatives from across campus in attendance.

The winner of the first ever University of Alberta Sustainability Leadership Award is Candice Tremblay, Augustana’s Sustainability Coordinator. She has worked to incorporate sustainability at Augustana Campus into teaching, community outreach and operations for many years.

Her contributions to sustainability include: serving as student representative on the Green Campus Committee in 2007; mentoring Augustana’s Earthwise environmental club; facilitating the campus’ sustainable food policy initiative; researching and guiding sustainability policy changes; assisting with the logistical aspects of a signature solar panel project at Augustana; growing sustainability-related placements with Community Service Learning; and extending sustainability into the broader Camrose community.

Please join us in congratulating Candice on the award that recognizes so much hard work and commitment. For more information on the Sustainability Leadership Awards, others recognized this year, and to nominate a deserving candidate for next year, please click here.
