Centre for Environment celebrates Ecolink website

Thursday, February 18, 2010 11:05:51 AM

The Centre for Environment at U of T is proud to announce Ecolink, a unique student web portal for all things environment-related at U of T: http://ecolink.environment.utoronto.ca/.  The new site features social networking features and regularly updated information on events, academics and job opportunities in and around campus.  Contributors to the new site include bloggers from both the school and the larger community.   

To celebrate this significant expansion of the Centre for Environment's web presence, the website includes an Ecomedia Solutions multimedia contest which provides students with a chance to win prizes by creatively engaging with environmental issues.  Entries are due April 8, 2010.

The Ecolink website was initially created in August 2008 with a contribution from the Vice-President and Provost's Student Experience Fund (SEF). 

The Centre for Environment is an interdisciplinary academic unit at U of T which offers graduate and undergraduate programs in areas such as environmental science and environmental policy.  The Centre also runs distance education and certificate programs in professional development, two regular on-campus seminar series, and hosts international conferences and guest speakers.  Join us online in 2010 as we seek to increase the capacity of the Centre to work for positive environmental change.
