Since 2006, the Science Undergraduate Society Environment Committee has organized GreenWeek to increase students' awareness and consciousness of the environment. GreenWeek is a week of student-run workshops, events and activities that are both entertaining and informative, but mainly geared towards promoting a culture of sustainability. This year, GreenWeek will take place during the week of March 16th – 20th, 2015.
This year, the GreenWeek team has set a goal to increase a lasting sense of environmental awareness in both SUS and the McGill community. We hope to achieve this by raising money and awareness for Action Communiterre. The committee wanted to give back to the community, which has oriented our choice towards Action Communiterre, a non-profit organization dedicated to sustainable projects and eco-friendly development in Montreal and across the province.
SUSEC is proud to announce the beneficiary of Green Week and ECOuture 2015: Action Communiterre! "Action Communiterre is a non-profit organization promoting food security through a network of collective gardens, workshops, and activities that create better awareness of – and more widespread access to—fresh, healthy food. Our vision is to reinforce social solidarity and build community to deal with the issue of food security in ways that ensure both equality and environmental sustainability."
