University group looking to strike a ‘symbiotic’ relationship with Penetang

York University

A group of York University ecologists is eyeing Penetang’s eco gardens to further education around climate change solutions.

José Etcheverry, professor at York University’s Environmental Studies faculty, presented the idea to council committee at its recent meeting.

“We decided collectively to try to impress on you the benefits you will accrue on a community level,” he said. “What we’re trying to achieve is a new educational strategy where people can learn to solve problems in the climate emergency by collaborating with each other.” []
