CISC Manitoba hosted Sustainable Communities; Sustainable Construction, a steel recycling networking event on April 19 at the Canadian Museum of Human Rights in Winnipeg.

This unique event not only inspired and educated the local steel industry on regional and national steel recycling initiatives, but also encouraged attendees to give back to their community–and to have fun doing it!

By partnering with Winnipeg Repair Education and Cycling Hub (WRENCH), a local non-profit organization, this event allowed people to network and learn about steel’s sustainability while building bikes for charity. CISC Manitoba welcomed guest speakers to share their expertise and wealth of knowledge on sustainable development in the construction industry.

Through this event, 16 bicycles were uniquely refurbished by attendees and donated to WRENCH.
