Originally from the prairies, Hannah McKinnon has been lucky to spend a fair amount of time with mountains and ocean in the same view. After stumbling upon the impacts of climate change on aquatic fungi during her undergraduate thesis, Hannah decided it was time to figure out what it was going to take to make policy-makers step up to protect our shared climate. Hannah has worked on climate change and energy issues for almost a decade, with experience ranging from adaptation and risk management in Central America, to national and international climate policy and advocacy in Canada. In her position as National Program Manager at Environmental Defence, Hannah is working to ensure that Canada moves towards safe, clean and renewable energy and away from reckless expansion of the tar sands. Hannah has a M.Sc. in Science and Society from the London School of Economics, a B.Sc. Hon. in Biochemistry from Mount Allison University and studied at Lester B. Pearson United World College.
