Happy November! 
We are excited to keep you up-to-date with all the latest news about sustainable events, volunteer opportunities, and initiatives happening within the Carleton community.
 
Participate in a Campus-Wide Consultation on Sustainability
The Strategic Integrated Plan for the university is being updated and is holding open consultations about how we can leverage our strengths and distinctive campus character to create a unique vision of Carleton’s future. Sustainability has emerged as one of the themes from these initial sessions, meaning that our community views sustainability and Carleton’s leadership towards this subject as important. 
 
The next step of the consultation process is the emerging theme topic-specific consultations. We would encourage you to consider attending the event on Wednesday, November 20th 8:45am-10:15am about Sustainability Leadership at 2017 Dunton Tower. This will allow you to provide your views towards sustainability as it intersects with research, teaching, student experience and organizational excellence. 
 
There are other emerging theme consultations also happening this and next week and the full line up can be found here, including how to sign up.

Local Vendors Market
Carleton Dining telling you all things about local & sustainability food on campus!
Professor Myron Smith selling local honey and hot sauce on campus
Last week, CUSA collaborated with Student Energy Carleton and Sustainability Carleton to create a Local Vendors Market for the university's financial literacy campaign. This event promoted the benefits of buying local: it's good for the environment (less food miles), for the community (build stronger relationship with your local community), for the vendors (support your local business), and for YOU (enjoy seasonal, fresh and sustainable food options)!

Fun Fact: Did you know you can get local raw honey and hot sauce made right here on campus? Professor Myron from the Carleton Biology Departmen
