About the Bicentennial
McGill University’s bicentennial anniversary represents a momentous occasion for our community. It is as much a time to celebrate our long history of achievement as it is an opportunity for reflection as we chart the course for our third century.
About the McGill Sustainability Systems Initiative
Shifting to a more sustainable future requires taking a multi-faceted, systems-level approach to some of the world’s knottiest problems. The McGill Sustainability Systems Initiative (MSSI) seeks to mobilize McGill researchers around sustainability challenges and equip the next generation with the skills needed to address these issues. In its novel approach, the MSSI provides opportunities for researchers from very different disciplines to interact and co-design projects that address complex problems from a variety of perspectives. The outcome is a robust and vibrant community of committed sustainability researchers.
