Three of our East Side House students were given an unforgettable opportunity, thanks to our partners Hydro-Quebec, to attend the FISU World University Games 2023 in Lake Placid, New York. Considered the collegiate version of the Olympics, the FISU World University Games is a competitive athletic and educational festival. During the run of the games our students were given the unique experience of participating in the youth Mac Pac Program. This program incorporated the Save Winter campaign, a compensative sustainable initiative that intersects climate awareness with winter sport. Our students learned about winter athletic activities such as skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, and much more as they met gold metal athletes, while they enjoyed nature in the Adirondack region of Upstate New York and learned ways to reduce their carbon footprint and make positive difference in the fight against climate change.
Hydro-Quebec has been generating, transmitting, and distributing clean renewable energy for 75 years and is invested in using innovative forms of clean energy in the future. We thank Hydro-Quebec for giving our students an amazing experience that they will never forget at the FISU World University Games 2023 in Lake Placid, New York. We look forward to continuing our partnership in future ventures with Hydro-Quebec.
