Grenfell graduate students welcomed Spring by presenting their research in St. John’s during the MAEP Policy Competition, an initiative of the Master of Arts in Environmental Policy program (MAEP), and at the annual Aldrich Conference.
Dr. Brian Eddy of Natural Resources Canada’s Canadian Forest Service (CFS) has worked with Grenfell Campus on research for almost ten years and is happy to see this partnership continue. Brian – whose work encompasses geospatial analysis, sustainability, land use and ecology – has extensively explored the connections between people and their environment, looking at how these connections can be understood in an integrated way, and what these connections mean for the wellbeing of communities.
This episode interviews Dr. Garrett Richards who studies how to mobilize research and get it to audiences such as the public and policy makers, so that the research can better inform decision making on issues like climate change and energy development.
In this podcast we hear from Dr. Doreen Klassen, a professor of Anthropology and Folklore at Grenfell and Natasha Pennell, an undergraduate student, who recently had research presented at an event entitled GRENFELL’S RESEARCH MEETS CITY COUNCIL.
