Sustainability Leadership Award

We’re always looking to recognize and celebrate sustainability champions in our midst. The most formal way this is done is through the BRAVO Sustainability Leadership Award, which recognizes outstanding contributions of Red River College staff and faculty who advance environmental, social and or economic sustainability in meaningful ways. This can include contributions to research, education, leadership, or advancing sustainability in governance and operations.

If you know an individual or team who is committed to sustainability, consider nominating them. The nomination period is every fall, and the award is given once annually.
