TRU Gets Green Light on New Sustainability Projects

Four new sustainability projects will be coming to the Thompson Rivers University Campus.

The projects were submitted to TRU Sustainability Grant Fund by faculty members and students. Each submission included an original video.

A total of $100,000 is available for the projects which must improve the university’s operational environmental performance, foster sustainable literacy and campus community engagement, advance applied research and demonstrate the viability of sustainability technologies.

The projects include a new LED par lighting instrument for the Actors Workshop Theatre. The new lighting use less power than the older lights and last longer.

New solar street lamps will also be installed in high traffic areas around the campus.

Another project will be a solar compass walkway which will be embedded at the front of the Arts and Education building. This will be Canada’s first solar road.

Finally, a sweat lodge will be built on campus to help foster Aboriginal understanding and culture on campus.
