McMaster, Loyalist partner with Port Hope to research environment and sustainability
A new partnership has been penned by the Municipality of Port Hope to join forces with McMaster University and Loyalist College, with a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to collaborate on future sustainable and environmental remediation efforts within the Municipality.
“This is an excellent opportunity for our community,” exclaimed Bob Sanderson, Mayor of the Municipality of Port Hope. “Council is fully supportive of this important, collaborative partnership, and we look forward to the research and projects that will be planned to promote the future health and vitality of our environment.”
The scope of the MOA includes determining how best to access, where appropriate, external funding opportunities to support research projects based on environmental stewardship and sustainability, and to determine the types of educational programming that best supports current and future workforce development needs in the growing field of environmental studies and sustainability. The partners have agreed to work collaboratively towards this vision, drawing on resources from within their organizations to support the goals.
