Hitting the Benchmark is a student-driven project about sustainable urban design that was awarded a Sustainability Projects Fund (SPF) grant from McGill University in February 2011.
The project creates a pair of unique benches made of scavenged materials for McGill campus. By providing street furniture made of reclaimed waste, Hitting the Benchmark provides a platform for youth- driven design that engages the student body and community at large to interact with campus space and challenges the creative reusability of waste.
Come celebrate the unveiling of the benches Friday, April 8th from 2 pm – 4pm on the Leacock Terrace (between Leacock and Morrice Hall) on McGill Campus. There will be free kombucha tea and nachos.
