Sustainable residences contest


Bad environmental habits when arriving home? Not at Quebec’s university and CEGEP residences.

The second edition of the PJDD’s Sustainable Residences contest will take place between February 4th and 15th. The residences will compete for different prizes in 4 categories:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Waste management
  • Sustainable management
  • Participation

Last year Laval and McGill (down town and Macdonald) took the prizes home. This year CEGEP residences are invited to join the competition with the chance to win tickets for a park of Arbre en arbre, recycling stations of NI Corporation, T-shirts of PLB and many other prizes.

The contest is an excellent occasion for participating residences to emphasize sustainability initiatives in these dynamic places of public and private life that are often under represented in sustainable development projects. At the same time it offers an opportunity for students to engage themselves for a sustainable living environment by posing concrete actions in a friendly competition.

Follow the contest life on and leave your comments to encourage the participants.
