CHNGR MTL is an ADVENTURE that you’ll share with students from different universities who, like you, believe that our economy, organizations and our society should put people and planet first.

We INTEGRATE notions (social solidarity economy, collective entrepreneurship, facilitation tools, democratic decision-making) and opportunities (employment, projects, entrepreneurship) within post-secondary institutions,

BY COLLABORATING with professors, student associations, departments, career services, entrepreneurship centres, and key social solidarity economy actors.

We recognize that this type of change takes time, so we aim to CONSTRUCT, brick by brick, the necessary foundations for lasting change.

We also work to RAISE AWARENESS, AND GUIDE students wishing to have a positive social impact to the appropriate spaces.

We are not here to reinvent the wheel. That being said, we place importance on MAPPING existing initiatives and projects.
