A few weeks back, our student executives got the chance to sit down and learn about an exciting new initiative in Windsor-Essex. SMART Windsor-Essex is an organization focuses on creating innovative technology that has the capacity to improve current issues facing our region. The UWSA and SMART discussed how to use technology to ensure food security/combat poverty and transportation accessibility.
The idea is that we as a region would come up with one idea – which will be submitted by City Council – to the federal government, which if we win we can, in turn, get up to $10 million to help make this project come alive.
We want to hear from you! Student concerns and ideas are an important aspect in this project so please check out the survey here.
Below are some resources regarding this project:
