Vision 2020: Moving Beyond the Plan aims to institutionalize and initiate the implementation of the long-term sustainability strategy developed for – and from – the McGill community.
The project has three objectives:
There is a chronic problem with student engagement with apiculture at Macdonald Campus.
We are applying to the SPF to create and institutionalize a beekeeping and farming internship between the McGill Apicultural Association (MAA) and the Macdonald Student-run Ecological Gardens (MSEG), and the Office of Student Academic Services at Macdonald Campus (OSAS).
The objective of the project is to provide locally grown fruits and vegetables from the Macdonald Campus’s Horticultural Center to McGill’s downtown residences and the general student community.

The McGill downtown campus currently has a serious shortage of available child care spots. This undoubtedly impacts child care accessibility for both graduate students and professors. Unfortunately, there has been no formal research examining the nature or extent of this problem.
From the initial application: The McGill Library Sustainability Working Group was formed in March 2012. We are a group of librarians, library assistants, and administrators working to green library operations and to support social sustainability, as well as sustainability research and education at McGill. We are applying for funds to continue, and build on, the excellent work begun by TEVA.
From the Macdonald Student-run Ecological Gardens 3 (SP0071): At the Macdonald campus of McGill University a student-led initiative is bringing forth ecological agriculture into its food system, curriculums, internship opportunities and its social sphere.
McGillians and Montrealers rely on ecosystem services (ES) – the benefits people obtain from ecosystems – but we are often unaware of their importance in our daily lives.
