Dawn Bazely receives President’s Sustainability Leadership Award
Biology Professor Dawn Bazely was one of three recipients of the President’s Sustainability Leadership Awards. The awards were presented at a reception held on Friday, April 21 in advance of Earth Day.
Professor Dawn Bazley has made impressive and sustained contributions to sustainability research, teaching and outreach at York University. She has a record of outstanding teaching, is a highly regarded expert and leader in social media communications, and pursues knowledge mobilization activities and networking on climate change, global sustainability, environmental protection, and public engagement.
She has demonstrated leadership in sustainability in many ways, including leading and championing many research and education projects on York University’s campuses. She championed and led the application process to certify York University as an official “civil society observer” of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change process, which made it possible for York U representatives to attend as delegates at the annual Conferences of the Parties (COPs).
Particularly impressive is her ability to build bridges between the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, and to bring non-governmental organizations, student groups, University staff and others into productive collaborations to advance sustainability at York, in the local community, in Canada and beyond.
