The route will follow paved sidewalks and the buildings we will visit are fully accessible.
This walk is a green tour of the University of Ottawa, focusing on the environmental infrastructure and social integration of the University of Ottawa and the City of Ottawa (including the Sandy Hill area). The tour is organized by the Office of Campus Sustainability and will include topics related to green space, transportation, engineering, architecture, land planning, and agriculture. All are welcome.
You can learn more about the Office of Campus Sustainability and their initiatives at www.sustainable.uottawa.ca.
We will begin in front of the SITE Building (800 King Edward, on the west side of King Edward, just north of Mann Ave.) and work our way north through the heart of the campus along the Grand Alley ending at Tabaret Hall (550 Cumberland). The route will follow pedestrian paths through the University of Ottawa Campus and will occasionally go into some of the buildings.
