Active Transportation costs less, is better for the environment and is better for you! Camosun is committed to reducing the number of single-occupancy vehicles driven to the college, and providing our community with opportunities to choose alternatives. We have a comprehensive Parking and Transportation Demand Management Plan and we are committed to providing convenient, sustainable transportation choices to the college community.
Part of Camosun's sustainability plan
Camosun is its people — students, faculty and staff — and one of our biggest strengths is the relationships that we cultivate and keep. We understand our shared responsibility to ensure our actions benefit the environment, the life it supports and future generations.
As leaders and educators, we have an opportunity to be forward-looking, to catalyse innovation, to equip our students and employees for the future and to empower them to be contributors beyond themselves. We want to advance sustainability at Camosun and beyond, and we want to lead by example.

Rampage helped the Office of Environmental Sustainability find “Recycling Heroes” across campus Oct 7 and 8th – see here. We also helped sort your waste in the Campus Caf and Urban Diner. Did you know that all cutlery and most of the packaging in the Campus Caf and Urban diner is compostable using the yellow bins? Did you know that in 2013-14 the Camosun College Community increased our waste diversion rate by 7%?

As a geographer who commutes 10 kilometres a day for work and loves to ride with her children, ages three and six, Trisalyn Nelson has three excellent reasons to champion bike safety. As Lansdowne research chair of spatial sciences at the University of Victoria, she has helped create a way to do it: http://www.BikeMaps.org. Launched this week, the mapping website allows cyclists to track danger spots, crashes, near misses and bike thefts, while letting other cyclists know about them.
