Back to (Eco-)School

Yup, it's that time of year again: students are headed back to school. Same goes for us, as our "Living Green" courses will be kicking off again through Confederation  College's Continuing Education program.

We'll start on September 26: "Living Off the Grid", from 6:30 - 9:30.
Next is October 3 with "Intro to Solar Energy", also from 6:30 - 9:30.
Then is there's a new course slated for November 7, again from 6:30 - 9:30: "Intro to Small Wind Power", offered by popular request.
Follow the links above for more information, or check The Key's fall issue on page 31.

The great thing about these courses is you don't need to be living in Thunder Bay to enjoy them. The College has a number of "virtual class rooms" all over NW Ontario, hooked up to the actual class room via closed circuit TV. It's almost as though you're actually there, very cool!

There's always a high turnout for these courses, and with the recent (and impending) significant price hikes for Hydro, propane and gas, we expect they will sell out even faster now. Interesting how the economy can be part of the drive to be green...
