Wishing the Dal team great success on their competition! (Unless they go against MTA!)
As an advocate for social justice and the environment, this appeals to me as worthy venture. Similarly, I have a peripheral link to an Indigenous project in Ontario with historical and ecological learning for youth.
Great initiative! The expedition sounds fun and I think the students will really enjoy this.
I have read about related BIPOC natural science initiatives elsewhere, how they can influence people/institutions, science and science culture, and so was very happy for Nova Scotia when I found out about Dalhousie's Diversity of Nature program (AND the program includes a coastal ecology workshop).
As a fellow ecologist, I have been looking to support an initiative to help bring more BIPOC into the field, and this project is absolutely fantastic and truly exciting. Very excited to support you, and wish you all the best!
Social justice starts with equitable opportunities and access to education for everyone. If we want the world to be a better place, we should make education accessible to the marginalized.
COVID-19 will affect all aspects of education, including financial supports for students. any amount of support would count
