Sustainability Research Symposium: Innovations Toward a Sustainable Future


Thomson House 3650 rue McTavish, Montreal, QC, H3A 1Y2, CA

Join us for the 9th annual Sustainability Research Symposium: "Innovations toward a Sustainable Future."

Our 2019 symposium will focus on the most recent innovations and progress towards a sustainable future. We see sustainability as going beyond environmentalism to encompass issues of human rights, equitable and inclusive growth, and secure and healthy communities. We seek innovation in all its forms - technological, but also social, pedagogical, and organizational. This student-led conference has served as an interdisciplinary platform for students and researchers to share ideas and research for the last eight years.

Our 9th edition of this symposium will highlight the work of researchers and innovators who are pushing the boundaries of biochemistry, urban architecture, and epidemiology to respond to some of our planet’s most pressing challenges.

Featuring lectures by Dr. Scott Weichenthal, Dr. Audrey Moores, and Bruno Demers of Architecture Sans Frontières Québec - ASFQ, as well as student posters and a wine-and-cheese reception.
