Environmental Design


Environmental Design is a pilot project aimed at helping students become environmentally and socially aware.

They attend workshops and interactive fieldtrips, and are shepherded through the various stages of putting together a design project, from idea to presentation.


Environmental design project by the numbers

4 projects coordinators, university students or recent gratuates

4 schools including one in Abitibi-Témiscamingue
1280 hours of work with youth at risk

The students are sensitized to environmental issues, and are educated in active citizenry. Our Project coordinators are experts in their field, and therefore mentor the students on urban planning opportunities and issues, and on helping sustain the efforts already afoot in their community, including their school.

The Environmental Design project fosters finding solutions to problems instead of criticizing them, and helps students develop their creative and logical thinking through stimulating teamwork.
