Most of the Environmental Innovation student cohort attended the annual conference of the Canadian Society for Ecology and Evolution (CSEE) on the Ecology and the Evolution of Managed Landscapes. During the conference, we held an Environmental Innovation student-researcher ice-breaker meeting for students to know more about the program’s structure and expectations, to learn about each other’s thesis and internship work, and to interact with the co-researchers. We also organized a 1-day workshop presented presented by Matt Carlson from ALCES Landscape & Land-Use Ltd on strategic land-use planning and cumulative effects modeling tools.
