Green Scene Sustainability Video Contest



This contest is put on by the Office of Sustainability here at the U of A




Categories for the Contest:

1. Sustainability Soundbytes

Create a short 30-60 second video that answers one or more of the following questions:

  • Question 1. What does sustainability mean and why is it important to YOU?
  • Question 2. How are YOU personally contributing to sustainability on campus?
  • Question 3. What role do YOU feel the University should play - locally, regionally or globally - and what priorities should the University address?

2. Sustainability Shorts

Show us your stuff! Create a short 3 minute video that tells us about the positive contributions students, faculty and staff are making towards sustainability. Tell us a campus sustainability story. Tell us more about what is going on in your residence, community, club, faculty or department related to campus sustainability.
