Take a look back on our 50th Day of Celebration

Take a look back on our 50th Day of Celebration

Since 1968, the Faculty of Environmental Studies (FES) at York University has been at the forefront of cutting edge research, teaching and learning. As the first Faculty of Environmental Studies in Canada, we have remained focused on exploring the interconnections and disconnections between humans and the environments in which we live – the natural & ecological phenomena, political & social constructs, urban & rural spaces, and indigenous, cultural & artistic ways of knowing.

It has been an exciting of year for FES. During the 2018-2019 academic year, we celebrated our 50th anniversary – recognizing our excellence in global research impact, dynamic teaching & experiential education, and fostering community participation & engaged citizenship with a series of special events. Looking back at our 50 year history and reconnecting with past colleagues, alumni and friends has been exciting and inspirational. On April 24, the Faculty of Environmental Studies hosted “A Day of Celebration” honouring our 50 years of Excellence.  This video series will give you a chance to experience the event again or for the first time!
