It takes a village

We know that a sustainable future is possible only through meaningful collaboration. We are proud to work with organizations and individuals who share our values. From small, local businesses to globally recognized institutions - we work with leaders across industries to develop innovative ways to build a low-carbon, circular economy through research, capacity building, or advisory roles.

Some examples of our current partners and associated programs below.

Canadian Society for Civil Engineering


In 2022, Dr. Zilberbrant provided seed money to support individuals to attend training in Sustainable Infrastructure and become members of CSCE. The goal was to support individuals facing financial barriers to attain a credential and connect to a broader network for career opportunities with 8 individuals sponsored in the first year. The program is now administered by CSCE Hamilton-Niagara and accepting applications to support more individuals.

At Beyond21 Academy, we are passionate about growing the opportunity for experiential, impact-based education. Our friends at Long Point Eco-Adventures (LPEA) in St. William's, Ontario, share our passion. LPEA was the host for the inaugural offering of the Carbon Sequestration & Nature-Based Solutions course in May 2023. We are working with LPEA to further expand the opportunity for their sustainable forest as well as embarking on research with graduate students from McMaster University to establish carbon mitigation and sequestration opportunities for the resort to drive towards carbon neutrality.
