Climate Action: Clothing Exchange at PSNM

Return to news

An initiative by a group of students at the Pensionnat du Saint-Nom-de-Marie (PSNM) was recently highlighted by the “Solutions Media Onepointfive”, a laboratory for young environmental journalists. The article relates the experience of a collective wardrobe (clothing exchange), an activity in this school that could be carried out twice a year, in the spring and fall.

This publication allows us at the same time to highlight the existence of this organization “Onepointfive”, so designated in order to recall the commitment of the Canadian Government at the Paris Climate Conference in 2015 to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5 °C by the year 2100.

The non-profit organization claims to be non-activist and non-partisan. “We do solutions journalism by focusing only on climate action here in Quebec,” the website states. With scientific rigor, this collective wants to talk about original initiatives experienced throughout the province and to share inspiring stories.

This media is also associated with a university research project in social marketing and environmental psychology.

In short, in this article you will discover two great stories!
