Call for Expression of Interest: Campus Living Labs

Turn your campus into a living lab! Round II

Colleges and institutes have a vital role to play in the race to net-zero! And, with the largest post-secondary footprint in the country, our engagement goes a long way.

We’ve already funded 10 successful demonstration projects and are looking for 10 more! Join a network of Campus Living Labs that demonstrate ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in 5 areas: Indigenous ways of knowing and doing, food, waste, transportation, and buildings and land management.

What’s a campus living lab?

Turning your campus into a living lab means integrating applied research and teaching with campus planning, infrastructure, operations, and community development in a way that maximizes the impact of sustainability projects. The campus is a sandbox for innovation, opportunity, and testing new ideas in a local context, while learning from and sharing successes and challenges.

As interactive demonstrations, living labs connect college and institute faculty, staff, students, and community partners to raise awareness about climate change, showcase the sector’s solutions and highlight the importance of reducing GHG emissions.

The deadline for submissions is March 3, 2023, at 11:59pm EDT.

For more information, please email us.
