Dawson reactions to AASHE Gold for leadership in sustainability


Last year ended on a high note for Dawson College with the news that the College’s leadership in sustainability had been recognized with a gold level STARS rating by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).

A third-party review team in the U.S. rated Dawson with the highest points in the gold category for any diploma-granting college in the world.

Reactions to the news poured in from every level of government, partners in sustainability and from many people involved in the project at Dawson College.

Many of our colleagues at Dawson took the time to share their reactions in words and videos.

Here is the first compilation video of reactions from our Dawson colleagues. We plan to share a second compilation video of Dawson reactions in February. We are grateful for all the messages received and they will all be used.

May this great news and these videos continue building the momentum to create a more sustainable future that promotes well-being for all.
