EarthWork at Pulse Energy
Pulse Energy, together with local Vancouver firms SES Consulting and Recollective, spent Friday on ‘EarthWork’: Making the world a better place in honor of Earth Day. Teams created an urban park and provided services for cyclists, with two projects featuring particular Pulse Energy involvement.
Energy Education in Surrey
Greg, Brent and Harish from Pulse Energy’s Client Services team guided the students of LA Matheson Secondary through a workshop on energy awareness, entitled “Energy Poverty”. This culminated a one week competition between four schools, with LA Matheson saving over 18% of its energy consumption for the week.
The workshop followed an Engineers without Borders format, dividing students into teams representing different countries. The ‘countries’ start with given education levels, supplies and money, encouraging students to learn and think differently about the world through interactive activity.
Ungardening at Semlin
Nine people from the three companies completed a gardening project at Semlin Gardens, a community housing development in East Vancouver. The garden was covered in weeds, which the group worked to remove.
After four hours of weeding, and more than a few interactions with local flora and fauna, the garden was in a suitable state for planting. Vegetable, herb and flower seeds were left for resident gardeners and children to arrange and plant to their taste.
