The aim of the Climate Solutions Park (CSP) is to create an inspirational sustainable modular experiential learning facility
Our climate solution parks are being built in key physical locations and as online communities to become an inspirational, interactive and innovative network working to awaken hearts, minds and actions toward climate solutions.
For example, by growing clean, local food, we help eliminate hunger at the community level; if we do that without burning fossil fuels, we can then create a knowledge base that can be readily applied to build local homes and other community-oriented solutions that are also essential to solve poverty.

Situated on the banks of the mighty Saugeen River, the Riverstone Campus is located 5 minutes from Durham, Ontario on 136 acres of historic farmstead. The property boasts diverse forests, hiking trails, agricultural lands and several indoor and outdoor facilities for events, overnight accommodations, retreats and educational experiences.
Penetanguishene – Native Plant Living Laboratory and Climate Solutions Park
Our team will build an applied research and experiential learning facility purposefully designed as a world-class destination focused on how to grow food locally using regenerative agriculture, renewable energy, geodesic dome greenhouses, and other highly replicable/modular technologies.
By building climate solutions parks, we create new spaces where local people can come together to implement solutions that improve their quality of life while helping eliminate the sources that fuel the climate emergency.
