We are Sustainability

Thank you for applying!
About Us

We are the Commerce & Engineering Environmental Conference held at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. As the premier undergraduate sustainability conference in Canada, we aim to expose delegates to the rapidly expanding and disruptive green industry, an area with substantial economic and social impact. CEEC explores the business opportunities and technology that will allow for the next generation of great companies to lead us into a world that is built upon renewable energy and other green innovation.

Theme

We are at a unique point in history. A time when the environment can no longer sustain the way that we are living. What will it take to change everything?

Our generation has experienced firsthand the effects of a disrupted climate. We are beginning to see the powerful impact of disruptive innovations which change the way that every single industry operates. We will come together with global leaders to disrupt the way that we think, act, and see the world around us.

Welcome to the time of disruption. Everything is changing. It is up to us to choose how.

Delegates

Why Attend? CEEC is a multi-disciplinary three-day conference that provides delegates with the opportunity to interact with students from different faculties across Canada with a shared interest in environmental sustainability. Delegates will engage with speakers and sponsors from a variety of different backgrounds and discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by a sustainable approach to business and innovation. At CEEC, you will be immersed in a weekend of case competitions, networking sessions, speaker panels, workshops and socials, all designed to make the conference a truly exceptional and inspirational experience.

 
  • “I learned so many insightful things about the green industry and upcoming technologies….I’m so happy I attended and have definitely left with a new outlook on my academic, social, and professional development.”

  • “I really like how CEEC has delegates from many different faculties and schools. This creates a dynamic atmosphere and as a result I was able to learn from not only the speakers but from many of the delegates as well. ”

  • “This was probably one of the most inspiring weekends I have ever had. I think extending it to 3 days was a wise move and even then every day was packed! But honestly, best conference I’ve ever attended.”
