TD Environmental Leaders Program
Each year, there are three projects that connect uOttawa students to a project related to: reforestation and restoration, environmental education and sustainability, or community gardens.
The Michaëlle Jean Centre for Global and Community Engagement, in collaboration with its community partners, is offering uOttawa students a chance to take an active role in carrying out positive, lasting change in the environmental sector. This program will bring together teams of uOttawa students, headed by team leaders, to plan and implement community-based service projects addressing environmental issues and challenges in the National Capital Region.
