ECRG Goes Overseas

This semester, ECRG member Madeleine Fisher, an undergraduate psychology and human geography student, went to Norway! She worked with the Western Norway Research Institute (Vestlandforsking) in Sogndal to support research and compare the challenges Norway and Canada are facing regarding plastic pollution mitigation in their respective fisheries and aquaculture systems. 

During this time, she presented at a Shift-Plastics workshop in Oslo about Canada's legislation and mitigation strategies regarding plastic pollution. She finished her time in Norway cleaning up plastic pollution on the islands surrounding Fløya and stayed on the vessel "Loyal." Madeleine has returned to Prince George and will begin her final semester of undergraduate classes in January.
