Club Founder Adam Kelliher recently made the Langara Voice for his Open Journal project. Adam has this to say about the journal:
“This Open Journal is meant to be a creative form of student engagement. It is like an open forum for all of us. The Purpose is to share thoughts, suggestions, ideas, pictures, secret messages, vent frustrations, campus activities… ANYTHING YOU DESIRE. Be creative.
We simply ask that you do so considerably and responsibly.
No vulgar language/drawings
Do not discriminate
Check out the journal in the library. More details in the attached image.
The results are in! The second weekly meeting time will be every second Thursday from 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM. This week’s meeting will be in room L221. As mentioned in e-mail that was sent if you would like to be kept up to date about where the meetings will take place please let us know by filling out this short form. We are asking this so we don’t bombard people with e-mails who don’t need them.
SO! Now we now have a meeting every week, alternating between Wednesdays and Thursdays:
Wednesdays at 3:30 until 5:00 in the afternoon in room A368 hosted by Adam. The next one is next week, October the 28th.

Free education is a privilege and its one our club offers to any student or faculty interested. We organize various speakers from campus faculty to off campus NGO’s founders, organizers and employees. We will track down professionals in any industry if requested and find a way to get a sustainability lecture from them for your sake. Various lectures will take place throughout the semester with a final March 13th lecture/workshop series taking place at Langara throughout the whole day 9am till 7pm. Drop in any time for whatever topics interest you. All students welcome. Taking place in room B144. Stay tuned for updates on topics.

Adam Kelliher: Why does Sustainability Matter 2:30- 4pm
Our future needs to be secured immediately. Climate change, over population and resource depletion are real threats. Looking after our own self interests can only be done to the up most extent if we strive to look after a larger definition of ourselves and unify ie: we need to invest in our communities and collaborate on admiral goals . If we do not learn to co-exist practically, responsibly and sustainably- our future livelihoods will remain jeopardized. More importantly, every wrenching nuisance and suffering you and all other humans before you have made into the well fair of humanity will serve no final intrinsic reward, but will be in vain.
Healthier food on campus is our top priority. Nutrition matters, whether we call it a diet or anything else. what humans need are effective calories. That, from a biological perspective means more organic foods so that our bodies are not attempting to process foreign substances. Fewer metal sequestrants, preservatives, colorings, pesticides etc. fall under this category. From an economical perspective, effective calories means not shipping strawberries in during winter and paying exorbitant prices for them. Purchasing local and seasonal fall under this category. From an environmental perspective, effective means less transport to cut down on CO2 emissions, as well as consuming less meat. Less meat means far more vegetables and legumes to go around the world to the other 1 billion malnourished citizens. It also means drastically cutting methane emissions from cattle which are a greater cause of climate change than fossil fuels (which seems to be Langara’s poorly placed sole focus of going green). Less meat is priority for environmental and ethical reasons- if you don’t know what goes on in factory farms its about time you learn. Join us for a lecture on it March 13th.
THE SUPPORT WE NEED FROM YOU! Join us March 11th at 1:30pm in room A 368 to discuss the foods and beverages supplied in the cafeteria with Chartwells, the company supplying it.
Leading up to this discussion will be a series of lectures and campaign initiatives to gain support in favour of having a healthier campus through greener, healthier more ethical food.
Wouldn’t it be great to have more wildlife on campus? How about sheep to eat the grass so we wouldn’t have to listen to lawn mowers? Maybe you want to see some bat, owl, and bird houses? Join the club and help get these projects going.
We work on various art projects, large and small for personal use or as activism demonstrations. Join us and learn how to take various waste materials and turn them into something beautiful, practical and effective.
February 11th, 1:30pm join us for our first large scale demonstration. details posted on room A368 door at that time.
