Campus de la transition écologique

Things to do at the Parc

The Campus de la transition écologique is an independent, not-for-profit organization that has been established on the islands of Parc Jean-Drapeau since 2020. Its activities are aligned with the 2020-30 vision of the future which seeks to make the Parc more accessible, green and blue and an initiator in best practices in sustainable development.

Through research, awareness-creating and experimentational activities, the Campus explores our lifestyles and relationship with nature and living things. Imagination, research and knowledge combine and are enriched through multidisciplinary meetings and projects which strive to accelerate the transition process.

Discover the results of this tasty blend with their program of activities and be prepared to be charmed by the unexpected relationship with nature and living things.

2023 Program

This summer, the Campus invites you to discover the experimentational projects that have been set up at the rose garden and the Fort on île Sainte-Hélène, marvel at winter in the middle of August, stroll along the water and pay a visit to their various crews in their headquarters.
