We are happy to announce that the Winter 2016 ICON Transdisciplinary classroom will be working with the Yorklands Green Hub to develop a mobile sustainability classroom.
From their website:
Yorklands Green Hub aims to create for Ontario’s public domain a self-sustaining education, demonstration, and research hub at the former Guelph Correctional Centre (GCC) in Guelph, Ontario.
Yorklands Green Hub will bring together businesses, organizations, and people of all ages and interests – to learn, work, share and innovate, with the common purpose of being engaged stewards of our land, food, water, and our overall wellbeing.
As part of the Yorklands Green Hub vision, students in the ICON Transdisciplinary classroom will apply their discipline specific knowledge to develop a mobile classroom. This will include the design of the classroom, as well as the curriculum, branding, and marketing needed to teach elementary and high school children, parents, and community members about sustainable living.
