Environmental students head to Mexico for a sustainability internship

This summer, four students from Dawson’s environmental profiles in both sciences and social sciences will embark on a six week internship to two Universities in the State of Morelos, Mexico to share ideas about sustainability and learn new practices. While in Mexico, they will work on the day to day maintenance of existing projects at the Universities and upon their return, they will share their new knowledge with the students and faculty at Dawson. However, to make this cross cultural exchange of knowledge and sustainable values possible they need your help, whether this be through giving a donation or spreading awareness! All the money collected from this campaign will be used to support student driven sustainability initiatives in Mexico. The students in Cuernavaca are very excited to connect with the Canadian interns, sharing knowledge, experiences, and working together to create a sustainable future. Thank you for your help and support!
