Concordia, Ben-Gurion University partnership receives $1M


A partnership between Concordia University and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel has received a $1M donation from Miriam Roland. The gift will be shared equally by the institutions and will support jointly-led sustainability pilot projects on a range of issues related to urban sustainability, zero-carbon buildings, the water-energy-food nexus, and more. The universities will also work toward sustainable approaches to urban development by participating in workshops and knowledge exchanges as well as “living-lab” experimentations and collaborations with neighbourhoods.
