Embark is a student-led non-profit society based out of Simon Fraser University with over 35,000 undergraduate and graduate student members. We empower students to create sustainable change through grants, training, and engagement.

We work to represent the voice of students at the university. Our commitment over the years has allowed us to acquire a seat on SFU's Senior Sustainability Council, the Sustainable Mobility Advisory Committee, and has enabled us to work with various SFU departments and groups to ensure student sustainability issues are addressed. 

If you'd like to volunteer and join the Embark team, visit our Opportunities page.

If you are not an SFU student but would like to support our work, consider becoming an Associate Member. As an Associate Member, you will be a part of our growing network of sustainability leaders. Join our events, campaigns, and get access to funding and professional development opportunities. Become a member today.
