Campus de la transition écologique

Things to do at the Parc

The Campus de la transition écologique is partnering with Parc Jean-Drapeau's program to offer research, awareness and experimental activities which provokes thought about lifestyles and relationships with nature. The Campus is part of the 2020-2030 vision for the future, which is aimed at making Parc Jean-Drapeau a park that is more accessible, green and blue, and an actual laboratory of best practices in sustainable development.

The mission of the Campus is to propose and craft tangible solutions on various thematic issues, including agriculture and biodiversity, water cycling and wetlands, forestry, citizenship and climatic equity, culture and heritage, energy and mobility.

On this summer's program: engaging and inspirational meetings and discussions, an experimental horticultural showcase and meaningful talks in a lesser-known area of the Parc! Discover the activities and see how you can take an active role in ecological transition.
