Sustainable designs that can be achieved, replicated and maintained:

  1. Low-impact designs that improve the environmental state.
  2. Creating opportunity for industry and learning new skills (trades) within the communities.
  3. Giving students a global perspective on construction problems.
  4. Stimulating research that makes a difference.

Our Goals:

Our Mission:

The Alternative Village at the University of Manitoba has established a connection in rural Honduras to work on projects that focus on sustainable living. Students spend ten days living and working on those projects with our partner community after researching and prototyping design solutions during the fall semester. Graduate students undertake larger research projects and assist with management of the yearly program. Participants are members of the Students for Sustainability chapter at the University of Manitoba.
