Introducing a new collaboration between the Rekhi Foundation for Happiness and the University of Waterloo, aimed at exploring the science of happiness. This partnership, represented by Waterloo's Faculty of Environment, seeks to integrate happiness research with sustainability efforts. This initiative reflects a shared vision of fostering well-being and sustainability through scientific understanding.

The inaugural Hub for Sustainability Integration Conference, held on March 22, 2024, marked a significant collaboration between the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) and the Faculty of Environment.

The University of Waterloo's Knowledge Integration (KI) program, celebrating its 15th anniversary, emphasizes solving complex global challenges like climate change and cybersecurity through interdisciplinary collaboration. The program aligns with Waterloo's future vision of integrating different disciplines to address global issues. At the 15th-anniversary event, projects from the Knowledge Integration exhibition (KIX), based on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, were showcased.

The Department of Knowledge Integration hosted Shad Waterloo for Grade 10 and 11 students from across Canada. They tackled the question: How might we reimagine living spaces for people in Canada to make them more accessible, sustainable, and community-oriented? We joined this year's cohort at their final open-day event to see their proposed projects and ideas, and learn what they liked most about their experience.
