2017 Forces AVENIR Gala: Ruche Campus wins the Environment AVENIR award

The Université de Sherbrooke’s Ruche Campus Team

 

For years, Cascades has been supporting university students’ community involvement through Forces AVENIR, a true hub for the decision makers of tomorrow. The organization recognizes and honours young adults who make significant contributions to their communities while excelling in the academic sphere. As a partner in the Environment category, Cascades awarded a $4,000 scholarship to the Université de Sherbrooke’s Ruche Campus project for its commitment to raising awareness of bees’ essential role in biodiversity.
