Our cosmetics are awash in toxic chemicals, or so it seems. Are we in imminent danger? Should we throw them all out and go au naturelle? Or slather away in a fool’s paradise, only to develop cancer – or worse, pass on our toxic habits to our children as birth defects? Why are there toxins in our products at all? And if these toxins are so dangerous, why isn’t anything being done?
A Scientific Opinion
This highly interactive workshop gives participants the opportunity to learn more about personal visioning and goal setting in theory and practice.
This is the First annual Trottier Symposium on Sustainable Engineering, Energy and Design.
Everyone is welcome to attend this CIVE 615 Environmental Engineering Seminar (part of the Environmental & Water resource engineering seminar series) given by: Prof. Tom Gleeson, Faculty of Engineering, Prof. Mark Goldberg, Faculty of Medicine, Prof. Richard Janda, Faculty of Law - McGill University
In recent years, natural gas extracted from shale formations has become an increasingly important energy resource throughout North America.
This seminar, open to all, is part of the Environmental and Water Resource Engineering Seminar Series. Join us as Professor Simon Barnabé discusses "Resource recovery applications: approaches, tools and projects for the relaunch of rural economy".
As biomass is the basis of most rural economy, resource recovery could be the key to relaunch or revitalize rural communities affected by socio-economic problems such as local plant shutdown, decline of population, lack of business initiatives, and reluctance to change.

Sustainability essentially involves the obligation to leave to future generations the capacity to ensure their well-being. This obligation raises the question of whether we are running out of resources—in terms of both “sources” and “sinks”—necessary for its fulfillment.
