The Fonds de solidarité FTQ is proud to have been a partner of the “Transportation for a Better Life” project of the Fondation Monique-Fitz-Back, an organization whose mission is to promote education related to the environment and a healthy living environment, within the perspective of sustainable development.
This project was launched to stimulate reflection and encourage the involvement of young people with respect to the challenges raised by transportation. Young people were asked to observe their surroundings and then imagine living environments that are more respectful of people and the environment.
As part of this project, 3,300 students participated in the “Transportation of the future: my vision” drawing contest. The drawings of finalists and winners will be part of exhibitions that will tour several libraries, while those of winners will be exhibited in over 1,300 buses of the Montréal, Laval and Lévis transportation corporations as well as in the buses of the Réseau de transport de la Capitale and the Association québécoise du transport intermunicipal et municipal.
