A passive house introduction for kids

  • False Creek Community Centre 1318 Cartwright Street Vancouver, BC, V6H 3R8 Canada (map)

Let's Build an Eco-Friendly House!

Please join Petit Architect and the City of Vancouver for a fun-filled morning exploring sustainability in buildings! Open to children between 7 to 12 years and their parent/guardian, this hands-on workshop will explore the role that buildings play in the long-term health of our environment. The children will learn about climate change and its challenges, recycling and healthy materials, how to build energy efficient buildings through simple Passive House principles and why the City of Vancouver is aiming for zero emission buildings.

The children will learn ways in which we, both individually and collectively, can make a positive impact on the environment and have fun designing and building their dream eco-friendly home!

Snacks will be provided. Your child will leave with a model of an eco-friendly, Passive House they made themselves and a deeper appreciation for the environment and the role that buildings play in ensuring a healthy planet.

Space is limited - register today to save your seat!


This event is supported by the City of Vancouver and Passive House Canada.
