LIVING LABS at BÂTIMENT 7
The Living Labs initiative aims to support projects which engage community members of Pointe-Saint-Charles and students through a living laboratory method. This provides students opportunities for experiential learning while collaborating on meaningful projects that embrace sustainability and community action.
We are thrilled to announce that The Sustainability Action Fund and the Office of Community Engagement at Concordia University have formed a partnership to support student leadership in community-based sustainability projects at Bâtiment 7.
Bâtiment 7 is a heritage industrial site located on former CN lands at the southernmost tip of Pointe St. Charles. The site is emerging as a unique model of collectively governed, citizen-led urban design project and home to 16 locally-led community initiatives. The site is also home to an anchored Concordia presence that supports and coordinates the emergence of student involvement, research and programming.
