A new community of social innovators will live in the GreenHouse

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Upper-year students with a passion for the environment or development now have a new way to take action on issues that concern them while at the University of Waterloo. By living in shared suites at St. Paul’s as part of GreenHouse, a new ‘innovation hub’ modeled on the successful VeloCity community (which puts entrepreneurially minded students together), GreenHouse will offer students workshops, seminars and working sessions to help them define and implement an initiative for environmental and/or social justice change.

Students will work in teams and receive guidance, advice and mentorship. Living together will help with networking, sharing ideas and meeting like-minded people. The GreenHouse will open in fall 2013, and the application deadline is March 1.
