Sustainability Scholars sponsors University of Alberta graduate students to work on applied research projects. Edmonton is Canada's second fastest growing city and has committed to ambitious sustainability goals with The Way We Green environmental strategic plan. The majority of Sustainability Scholars projects were developed by City of Edmonton staff in need of research in order to move foward with their sustainability goals. This applied research is key to helping the city understand its options for meeting its sustainability goals.
The first six Sustainability Scholars completed their projects from April to July, 2015. Their City of Edmonton mentors were Robyn Webb, Barbara Daly, Jim Andrais, Daniel Laubhann, Chandra Tomaras, and Lara Arjan. Learn how each of the Sustainability Scholars benefited from their experience and read their final reports, available for download below.
