Thanks SPF for supporting the Museum!

Published: 30 August 2020

This summer the McGill Sustainability Projects Fund (SPF) turned ten years old and it marked the occasion by giving the 130 year old Redpath Museum some funding help. Thanks SPF for subsidizing our new outreach project to create a "Museum in a Box" and for help to buy photography equipment so that we could create virtual StoryMap tours such as the McGill Tree Tour and the McGill Stones and fossils tour.

Check here for the launch of both these virtual tours for Homecoming McGill at the end of September.  

About the SPF: The Sustainability Projects Fund mandate is to build a culture of sustainability on McGill campuses through the development and seed-funding of interdisciplinary projects. It creates opportunities for the McGill community to actively engage in sustainability initiatives on campus, empowering individuals to be change agents in their own studying and work environment. Since 2010, there has been $10 million allocated plus, 250 projects funded and 86% were student-staff collaborations.

Or stay tuned for a livestream on Sept. 3 on What is sustainability anyway?
