About Sabrina Heerema
Sabrina Heerema
Polar Communications Officer

Born and raised in Canada, the Arctic and especially Indigenous Peoples have always held a special place in my heart. It has been an honour to have the opportunity to cooperate with the Arctic Council Secretariat previously and very exciting to focus on communicating the important work of GRID-Arendal’s Polar Programme. Currently my focus is on the Horizon 2020 projects Arctic PASSION and EcoTip, working together with Indigenous communities.

I studied Geography and GIS, and have worked as an Environmental and foreign development project manager, as well as a GIS consultant. Throughout those experiences, it was always clear to me how important it is to communicate the activities, impact and results of the projects to the public and stakeholders. I have always admired the way that GRID-Arendal communicates scientific information about the environment, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team.

I enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors in nature (especially in or on the sea) and with friends, family and animals.
