Université Sainte-Anne has been in existence for more than a century.
Since 2010, Université Sainte-Anne has been using three sources of renewable energy on its Church Point campus:
After two years of operation, the project has proven to be a resounding success, both from an economic and from an environmental point of view:
Under their professor's supervision, volunteer science students are involved in habitat-creation programs intended to help protect a number of threatened species. They have thus built and set up several nest boxes for swallows and black ducks in several locations on the campus. Students are also involved in follow-up procedures during the summer.
In September 2012, a new national shorebird observation program will begin: the marine ecology class will count shorebird species every seven days and the results will be entered in a national database.
Be it on campus or in the community, students in SIFE Sainte-Anne (Students in Free Entreprise) and in the Green Team are involved in many actions designed to promote green practices: organizing a Green Conference in collaboration with the municipality; cleaning up the campus and its sea shore; creating and publishing a Green Guide on ways to reduce our energy consumption; collaboration between waste management services in order to improve waste sorting within residences, etc. Our students are involved in sustainable development and it shows!
