Concordia University Centre for Creative Reuse (CUCCR)
CUCCR is a new initiative blooming from the university’s commitment to their developing sustainability policy. Aspiring to become a zero waste campus, CUCCR provides a major step in the right direction with a mandate of re-visioning clean reusable materials to create opportunities and intersections for innovation through interdisciplinary research and collaboration.

How it works
Materials are collected from within Concordia walls
(Studios, Labs, Classrooms, Offices, Events, Services)
They are put on display at CUCCR and made available for free to...
The Concordia Community
(Artists, inventors, makers, dreamer, planners, community organizers, et.all)
At its core CUCCR will capture an array of both conventional and unconventional material out of the Concordia’s waste stream and mobilize the selection through creative and pedagogical initiatives spanning all departments. Additionally to the direct increases of access to valuable material and unique approaches to acts of reuse, a heightened awareness of the Concordia’s waste and consumption will hopefully inspire consideration for sustainable practices.
