Wayfinding app enhanced with sustainability features

To mark World Environment Day, the University of Windsor has updated its CampusGo wayfinding app with new features highlighting campus sustainability efforts.

The global observance each June 5 promotes environmental conservation. This year’s theme, “Land Restoration, Desertification, and Drought Resilience,” underscores the urgent need to address such challenges as land degradation and water scarcity, says sustainability officer Nadia Harduar.

“At the University of Windsor, we recognize the importance of this day and are committed to supporting initiatives that promote biodiversity and sustainability,” she says.

A tool for navigating the campus, CampusGo now includes a dedicated Points of Interest (POI) tab enabling users to search for and discover sustainability initiatives, including the Native Plant Garden on the rooftop of the Centre for Engineering Innovation, the Campus Community Garden Project, electric vehicle chargers, waste collection bins, and water refill stations.

“With these enhancements, CampusGo not only simplifies campus navigation, but also promotes awareness of the University’s green initiatives, making it easier for everyone to contribute to a sustainable campus,” Harduar says.

She calls on the entire University community to find ways to mark World Environment Day.

“We can contribute by planting native species, conserving water, and supporting local conservation projects,” says Harduar. “Together, let’s work towards a healthier, more sustainable future for our planet.”
