Greening the OCAD Campus - Summer Workshop
0.50 Credit(s)
This course will introduce students to the various material and energy resource flows on campus, and will address sustainable design from a holistic perspective, including the following aspects:
• Environment: energy, water, materials (paper), waste; landscape, green roof
• Social: healthy building, indoor air quality, learning laboratory
• Economic: business case for sustainability, cost/benefit review
The course will provide students with an opportunity to begin to identify possible solutions for the reduction of energy and material flows on campus. We would collaborate with ZERO Footprint in this
endeavor, and the OCAD Sustainability Task Force, with staff and managers from the OCAD community. The collaborative effort is a model for sustainable design and development.
