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.

 

2017 Theme: The Modern Ecosystem

With the global agriculture industry consuming 69% of Earth’s fresh water, and industry sectors generating over 45% of greenhouse gases, it is clear that our current systems are unsustainable for a liveable future. For our 27th year, CEEC will focus on redefining the relationship between industry and environment for the modern world – challenging current processes, breaking through the limits of contemporary solutions, and inspiring sustainable innovation. In order to achieve The Modern Ecosystem we need a collective shift in the way all industries operate, and we need to start today.

  • “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.”
