Sustainable Homes Program

The Sustainable Homes Program provides the essential information you need to make sound sustainable decisions for your home and family. Set in your local Community Centre / Neighbourhood House the program facilitator will guide you through the facts, activities and challenges to make your home more sustainable and save on your energy and water bills.

Learn from demonstrations and group discussions in a relaxed and social atmosphere. In this way, you can leap frog your learning. The programs flexible design allows you to tailor the course to focus on what’s important to you. Before you know it you’ll be a sustainable citizen saving the planet and your hip pocket!

The education basis for the project is discussed in the paper Partnerships for sustainability.
