University of Toronto Blue Sky Solar Racing is a student directed program that applies higher education in advancing renewable energy technology and environmental decision-making. Through the design and construction of a solar powered vehicle, Blue Sky Solar Racing facilitates innovative applications of technology. The sight of a solar car and the excitement of solar racing generate the "cool" factor, which often acts as a catalyst that leads to further innovations down the road. The car's unique shape, distinctive sound and intriguing concept captivate the minds of countless onlookers every year; while the spirit of cross-continental racing awakens the heart and imagination of the public at large. Racing across continents at highway speeds using energy harnessed only from the sun requires enlightened design for power management. Each component of the car is thought out and evaluated in three key areas: maximization of total energy efficiency, elegance, and overall safety. While the design and construction are carried out under the rubric of performance and reliability, racing itself is a competition in sustainability. Blue Sky Solar Racing offers a unique learning experience not only through the design, construction, logistical operations, public relations and administration of a world-class solar race team, but also through the use of an intensely multi-disciplinary approach. Engineering, science, humanities, social science, and business students learn from each other how the varying decision making processes affect views on the environment and the role of technology.

Dans la Rue - Montreal, QC - Le Bon Dieu dans la rue - or Dans la rue as our organization is more commonly known - has been a leader in working with Montréal street kids since its creation in 1988. Our success stems directly from the philosophy of our founder, Father Emmett Johns, whose conviction that all youths are entitled to be respected and listened to in a non-judgemental way, forms the very backbone of the services we offer. Dans la rue is a safe place for these kids to go and a place for them to grow. They can find resources that have been tailored to their individual circumstances. But above all, they can draw on an unending source of respect, friendship and encouragement.
