A FILM ABOUT THE ECO-FRIENDLY VENUES BUILT FOR THE WINTER OLYMPICS IN VANCOUVER

Posted by THRIVE Program Teacher, Tyson Schoeber • Last Updated: 08-07-2014

The kids of THRIVE created this short film in the months leading up to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

The process of making this video allowed the kids of THRIVE to meet some pretty amazing people! We toured some of the new facilities and interviewed the architects who designed them. We also met with some of the senior executives working with the Olympic organizing committee. This project taught us a great deal about efforts to design buildings that have less of an impact on the environment.
