EcoPIA (Ecological People in Action) is a UWSA student collective dedicated to sustainability and environmental issue on-campus and beyond. In addition to housing a small lending library with environmental texts and DIY literature, we hope to see the office transform to include a free/swap space and a small seed library over the course of the year.
EcoPIA offers many volunteer opportunities for members. Currently we are focused on recruiting trash educators to encourage responsible waste disposal on campus. We also work and play outdoors in warmer weather, coordinate exciting events including Grassroutes, a sustainability festival, and participate in direct actions related to environmental justice. If you have an idea that can help make the world a better place, we want to hear about it!
Interested students can attend weekly meetings, Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the EcoPIA office, or send an e-mail for more information.
Location: Bulman Student Centre, Concourse Level (Beside UWSA offices)
