Chartwells is committed to supporting a vibrant academic and student life experience on campuses across Canada. We know that our students wield incredible abilities to address the sustainability challenges on campus, and the world we live in. In recognition of this, we have developed the Chartwells Campus Projects funds as means of letting students apply their imagination and knowledge to advance sustainability on their campus. For the third year, we asked students to submit their innovative sustainability ideas over the 5 week open application term.
We are proud to announce the six selected campuses as the recipients of the Chartwells Campus Projects for 2016-2017, each receiving $5,000 and resource support to bring their projects to life:
St. Paul's University College (Waterloo, Ontario) for their project submission to build a greenhouse as an expansion of their Campus Market Garden
Georgian College (Barrie, Ontario) for their project submission to enhance the Growing Georgian Initiative
Parkside Student Residence (Toronto, Ontario) for their project submission to implement a reusable Eco-Container take out program.
University of Ottawa (Ottawa, Ontario) for their project submission to design and build an automated Recycle Sorter.
- Humber College (Etobicoke, Ontario) for their project submission community garden development
We look forward to working with these students and our partner campuses over the coming year to implement these projects.
