Queen’s, BHER launch QVENT project to prepare students to work in net-zero economy


Queen’s University has partnered with the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER) to launch the Queen’s Venture Creation, Experiential Learning, and Net-Zero Training (QVENT) project to prepare undergraduate students to become climate leaders. Students will gain hands-on experiences that focus on net-zero and sustainability issues. The project draws on support from the Government of Canada to develop a “green talent” pipeline and features four program streams: Course-embedded green industry projects and learning challenges in class curriculums; a Certificate in Leading Sustainable Change Towards a Net-Zero Economy; net-zero venture creation with seed funding opportunities for students; and the provision of at least 100 net-zero internships.
