The Bioresource Engineering Association at the Macdonald campus of McGill University and Green Drinks Ste. Anne proudly present Moana Lebel who will give a presentation on “Biomimicry in Engineering and Sustainability”. Moana Lebel is currently Director of the Biomimcry Quebec Institute. The event will take place on February 24th at 5:30 PM in Raymond Building R2-045 at the Macdonald campus of McGill University.
Biomimicry consists of emulating nature's time-tested efficiency principles to design innovative and sustainable technologies; products, processes, systems and structures. Lotus leaves have inspired the design of a self-cleaning outdoor coating. The Kingfisher has done the same for an energy efficient train, and the humpback whale has led to the development of a high performing wind turbine. Learn how all we have to do is consult nature because it already has the solution. All are welcome!
On February 27th Green Drinks Ste. Anne presents the organization Compost Montreal who will speak on ''A Growing Field: Composting, Social Enterprise, and Sustainable Waste Management in an Urban Setting.'' The talk will occur at 6 PM in Raymond Building R2-046 on the beautiful Macdonald campus of McGill in Ste. Anne de Bellevue.
Compost Montréal is a privately owned compost collection service that has operated out of St. Henri since 2007. Founder Stephen McLeod started the company with a bicycle and a trailer, collecting organic waste from friends and neighbors and composting it in a community composter. Since then, the company has grown to provide compost collection services to over 1200 homes and 200 companies, with fifteen staff and several pick up trucks (and a bicycle trailer). Compost Montréal is now considering the future of organic waste management in Montréal, and working to develop a truly sustainable approach, including energy generation, urban agriculture and community planning, redesigning cities, reconceptualizing services and reconsidering the food cycle. The company is working extensively with McGill students, residences and food and dining services, and is eager to push research and action forward in this growing field. Light refreshments will be available. All are welcome!
