The goal of this project was to increase sustainability literacy among university and college students, and to convince to provincial government to match the money committed by students to fund sustainability initiatives on campuses.
The tour started March 28, 2008, and visited universities throughout Quebec to pass the Pacte des Generations at schools across Quebec, and called on the Quebec government to match funds raised by this pact. The speakers on this tour included Hubert Reeves, Dr. David Suzuki, Jean Lemire, Desiree McGraw, and the SYC co-ordinators.
