What is Sustainability?
Sustainability is the integration of environmental health, social equity, cultural vitality and economic responsibility to create and maintain thriving, diverse, resilient communities for this generation and those to come. The practice of sustainability recognizes these are complex and interconnected issues that require an interdisciplinary, inclusive and collaborative systems approach to reach a state of collective well-being and social and environmental justice.
For Seneca campuses of Newnham, Seneca@York, Markham and King, including the Williams Treaty.
Seneca would like to acknowledge the land on which its buildings are housed, and where students, faculty, support staff and members of the public gather. This land is the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We are guests on this space, and it is our shared obligation to respect, honour and sustain the land.
