A New Alternative & Ecological Canadian University Founding Meeting

Arundel Natural Science Centre

Are you interested in ecological education? Are you concerned about the rising costs of post-secondary education? Would you like to help found a small, innovative university in Canada that is based on principles of sustainability and social justice?

This August a group of academics, students, and professors from across the country are coming together to create the foundations for an affordable and progressive Canadian university that demonstrates a unique curriculum and vision based on principles of sustainability, affordability, and social justice. The project is inspired by many different models from around the world, including Schumacher College in Britain, The International Center for Sustainable Living in India, United World Colleges, Ecoversity, Goddard College, and many others.

If you are an ecological educator, a professor, or if you have valuable organisational and fundraising skills, please come to Quebec to help make the dream of an accessible and ecological university in Canada a reality.
