The Opening Reception, held on Wednesday March 28th, 6 – 9 pm. was well attended with guest speakers Donna Tranquada, formerly of CBC Radio and Dr. Faisal Moola, Director General of the David Suzuki Foundation, Ontario and Canada’s North.

Awards for the best three Mega Quarry posters were presented to Joanna Lu, Anton Mwewa and Man Yan Ashley Yip. Honorable mentions were presented to Elvis Shao, Zhi Gao, Paul Bernier and Lauren Livingston. Congratulations to all students.

As these problems become ever more complex, there is a need for more cooperation, collaboration and a pressing need for more socially and environmental driven graphics”¬†adapted from Institute without Boundaries
