GRASS ROUTES: Intersections

Grass Routes: Where __________ and __________ meet.October 6 - 11 is the 5th annual Grass Routes Sustainability Festival, put on by the University of Winnipeg Students’ Association and the Campus Sustainability Office. This year, we’re contemplating INTERSECTIONS. We’re thinking about the streets, the art, the politics, the design, the communities, the bustle that make up Winnipeg- and where they meet. Join us from October 6 - 11 to create and explore the intersections of our city. Find the full program here. Highlights include a virtual classroom with David Suzuki, a mayoral candidate forum, and an Artist Talk by Montreal-based artist Roadsworth.


Individuals working together really can make a difference. At UWinnipeg, 98 faculty & staff members registered for the Commuter Challenge. We traveled 6,195 km, burned 73,555 calories, conserved 475 litres of fuel, and saved 926 kg of C02 from going into the atmosphere and contributing to climate change! Burn calories, make friends, support better infrastructure, save money, and reduce your carbon footprint…why not participate in the commuter challenge all year round?
