Canadian Unified Student Environmental Network

Mandate

Canadian Unified Students Environmental Network Kingston is devoted to the preservation of the natural diversity of plant and animal species, and their habitats, through the prevention of environmental degradation and destruction in our region.

CUSEN educates both Queen’s University and people from the Kingston community about a wide variety of environmental topics including destruction caused by development, dumps, and the mining industry, and other related topics.

CUSEN organizes campaigns, direct actions and public awareness, building the capacity of community to address environmental issues.

CUSEN recognizes that the systemic interplay of resource extraction, colonialism and environmental racism gives license to numerous environmental and human rights abuses, and aims to confront internalized oppression and racism in society.
