ABOUT US

EDUCATION PROGRAM

We directly support an experiential education program dedicated to sustainable business practices

About the program

Green Campus Coop was founded by faculty and students at York University in early 2000s who were concerned by lack of socially and environmentally sustainable products on campus. The GCC is involved with several projects, including advocating for getting York declared a Fair Trade Campus. Green Campus Cotton was established in 2011 as a non-profit cooperative. While our mission is to promote sustainability and social justice, our members have different but overlapping needs. Faculty have used GCC to provide experiential education and a ‘living lab’ for teaching students about sustainable business. We are contributing to extending and deepening social economy networks: backward, forward and final demand solidarity-based linkages
