Goggles Project

In 2005, Dr. Tarah Wright commissioned a two year study investigating Canadian universities’ stances on sustainability. The findings were so provoking and the topic so timely, that we could not let the results simply end up as a bound report sitting on shelves. Thus was born Rethink University and The Goggles Project - a conceptual platform to engage higher education stakeholders in conversations about sustainability. The Goggles Project uses a quirky troupe of travelling players who will both collect and disseminate powerful thoughts on the role that universities can play in creating a sustainable world. The cross-Canada tour by train engaged hundreds of students, faculty and staff at 20 universities from Halifax to Vancouver.
