Dorval, December 2, 2019 - Finalist of the 6e Demain le Québec Prize organized by the David Suzuki Foundation, the Académie Sainte-Anne invites the general public to vote for its community and nurturing elementary school initiative from December 2 to 11.

Selected from among 100 candidates, the Sainte-Anne initiative calls on 17 sustainable development goals to mobilize young people to take care of their planet and its inhabitants. Accompanied by teacher Aline Boisjoli, the students of the Academy notably participated in the establishment of an organic vegetable garden, an ecological orchard, a farmhouse and a system of cultivation of herbs and lettuces in hydroponics and aquaponics. They can therefore grow their own food, cook and share the fruit of their harvest, which has led them to reflect on the importance of preserving nature, human well-being and equitable sharing in society.

“Our wish is to inspire schools and students in Quebec to take action to take care of our planet,” explains Véronique Lemieux-Boyer, director of the Académie Sainte-Anne, who launched the project with Ms. Boisjoli.

The Prix Demain le Québec rewards citizen initiatives that have a concrete impact on the environment and communities throughout Quebec. To vote, it's here.

The big winner will be announced on December 12. In the event that the Academy is a laureate, it will receive the visit by environmentalist David Suzuki next spring, as well as an amount of 5,000 $.
