Dr. Stephanie Green, marine conservation researcher at the University of Alberta and BMSC Fall Program instructor, is one of 21 leading sustainability scientists announced as the 2021 North American cohort of the Earth Leadership Program (ELP). Congratulations Stephanie!
“The Earth Leadership Program provides outstanding academic researchers with the skills, approaches, and theoretical frameworks for catalyzing change to address the world’s most pressing sustainability challenges, emphasizing new forms of individual and collective leadership. The program enables scientists to work collaboratively with diverse stakeholders and become agents of change within and beyond their universities.
This year’s North America cohort is composed of 21 passionate academics working within a wide array of disciplines related to sustainability, from marine biology to atmospheric chemistry, governance, and economics. The fellows, who come from 11 U.S. states, Canada, and Mexico, are committed to pursuing transdisciplinary work that brings together scientific disciplines, government representatives, private sector voices, and civil society to build a more sustainable future for all.”
Stephanie is the instructor for the BMSC Fall Program Marine Population Ecology and Dynamics course, sharing her passion for Pacific salmon in coastal British Columbia with the students.
“These mighty fish thread their way through a maze of industrial, urban, and agricultural development, only to find their spawning grounds fundamentally changed by a warming climate. The interdependence of our actions—local and global—and the deep relationships that formed between First Nations and scientists to understand such a complex system fuelled my passion for bringing people together to understand and solve complex conservation problems.” – S. Green
