Benoit Lavigueur is a 29-year-old Canadian carpenter who, over the course of six years, built the house of his dreams. The house, constructed from recyclable and local building materials, is 90% energy-saving and has a platinum LEED certification, making it the most ecologically-friendly house in all of Québec. “I built this house to prove to people that anybody can do it.”
Climate Heroes is a not-for-profit media project that aims to shed the light on those men and women who stand out by their values and actions, and can thus be set up as inspirational models to help us mitigate climate change.
It specifically aims to:
- Highlight positive actions that bring actual solutions
- Offer the public a novel vision on climatic issues, more readily accessible through examples taken from a wide range of stakeholders, be they professional or citizens
- Provoke thought, inspire and foster behavioral changes
