Additional documentation to support the submission:

The Université de Sherbrooke has a second Sustainability Projects Fund: the Fonds pour le soutien des projets de développement durable [EN: Fund for the Support of Sustainable Development Projects].

Once a project is in place, there are often other funding needs that emerge to upgrade equipment or to ensure continuity of activity over time. The #greenUdeS movement, launched in the fall of 2018, has resulted in the Fund for the Support of Sustainable Development Projects, which is dedicated to project continuity and sustainability. Financed by the Office of the Vice-President, Administration and Sustainable Development (VRADD) and the student engagement support fund, it is intended for both students and staff members of the UdeS.
