dsu climate change


The public is increasingly demanding stricter environmental regulations and initiatives, especially students. Proper maintenance of campus green spaces and aging infrastructure, as well as the implementation of new, more efficient equipment and technology, are crucial elements of a sustainable campus. Ultimately, states are responsible for setting environmental standards for public facilities and using public funds to meet those standards. For this reason, students should not be forced to upgrade their environments through additional usage or incidental fees.




Thanks to many years of environmental activism from Dawson students, staff and faculty, Dawson College has successfully put a ban on the sale of plastic water bottles since 2013! Years later, we are still water bottle free and continue to encourage our students to lessen their use of disposable plastic water bottles in their everyday lives. 

Water Bottle registration will be during Frosh Week in September in the Lower Atrium. 

In the past, we came to realize that making the DSU bottles endlessly accessible had its repercussions. 

In an effort to make students more environmentally conscious, we have decided to limit the students to only ONE free bottle per year through registration at the DSU office. Only Dawson students will be entitled to a free bottle, but the possibility to purchase a bottle will be open for students, staff, and faculty at a reduced price of 5$.
