TOE | TIMBER ONLINE EDUCATION is causing a global buzz. People are talking, tweeting, and advocating for it. But what is it?

TOE is a global resource for teaching sustainable wood design, construction, fabrication, development, policy, and environmental education. Today, more than a third of our energy use and carbon emissions can be attributed to our built environment. There is a persistent lack of jobs and shortage of skilled labour in the construction, manufacturing, and rural industries that cannot keep up with demand. We need a solution that can reconcile these complex, interconnected issues by creating a shared resource for education and innovation in the built environment. 

The TOE program is in its introductory phase. It will provide essential knowledge for wood building construction and especially advanced urban-scale wood buildings in a safe, economical, and sustainable manner.
