GRID-Arendal: 30 Years of Making a Difference
Travel with us through the last 30 years looking at some of GRID-Arendal´s best bits.
My passion for the environment started during my childhood, spending many hours in Tanzanian national parks. In 2014 I travelled to Australia to study Environmental Management at James Cook University, where I was lucky enough to dive the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Sea, as well as study a variety of tropical ecosystems.
This is what prompted my interest in marine ecosystems, which is why I decided to do a M.Sc. in Coastal Ecology at the University of Agder. In 2018, I started working at GRID-Arendal as a Communications Officer and, following my recent graduation, I am now leading communications for various projects focusing on marine ecosystems.
I have a major passion for scientific communication and believe that this is a key aspect of making a positive impact on the world. I am lucky enough to be part of this through projects such as the Norwegian Blue Forests Network (NBFN), Blue Solutions, PANORAMA Solutions and Kelp Carbon in Nordic Countries. My role at GRID-Arendal involves creating content, conducting research, developing websites as well as being engaged in outreach activities and planning local events.
