Sustainable Building and Tour of University of Manitoba

Nine students from the fly-in community of Wasagamack First Nation spent a week at the University of Manitoba. They attended a sustainable building workshop called Green Buildings 101, toured the Alternative Village to see stick wall and other sustainable building techniques and learned about the Access program. They were able to tour and learn about the architecture, chemistry, natural resources and environmental buildings. One registered for the University of Manitoba, wanting to be an interior designer using what she learned with the Boreal Homebuilding program.
