Rethink MacEwan U is launched!

Submitted by on 2015/02/04 – 8:30 am

The Office of Sustainability launched the Rethink campaign on February 2. Rethink aims to engage students, staff and faculty in taking action to reduce energy, water and waste consumption across campus.

A new group of freshly trained Eco Hero volunteers will be engaging the MacEwan University community in the campaign through a photo competition, pledges and classroom presentations. You can follow and participate in the campaign on social media with #RethinkMacEwanU.

Eco Heroes, with the support of Security Services, will also be leaving reminders to those who forget to turn off lights and computer monitors over night. If you have ideas on how to further reduce our energy consumption or if would like an Eco Hero to provide a short presentation on the Rethink campaign to one of your classes, please email
