Sustainability on “Wounds to the Face”

Sustainability and going green have become hot topics at York more and more. Just look at our Sustainability score! York University has been named the greenest university in Canada for the second year in a row. In the Theatre Department, thanks to a conscientious and forward thinking faculty and community, initiatives are continuously being made to improve the “greenness” of Theatre@York's shows and to reduce our carbon footprint. Last year the position of Sustainability Manager was added to the list of roles filled by production students. It is this person's job to track and evaluate the environmental impact of each show in an effort to rethink and reevaluate Theatre@York's practices. The Sustainability Manager for our first show Wounds to the Face, Julia Morgan, put together this interesting video to display in the lobby for the run of the show. Take a look at our numbers for the show and look for more information from the Julia and sustainability team at our next show!
