Coastal Connections – Episode 8 – Seaweed

Throughout Coastal Connections, we’ve seen a number of examples of humans working together to restore and steward natural systems that have come out of balance. In this episode, we dive into a number of stories from a seaweed inspired individual in PEI. Dr. Irené Novaczek is a benthic ecologist, gardener, professor and entrepreneur, just to name a few of her titles. Dr. Novaczek discusses her diverse journey building community resiliency, through innovative entrepreneurship and maximizing socio- ecological relationships. This episode is co- hosted by Dr. Kelly Vodden, a professor and researcher of community development and rural resiliency at Grenfell campus, Memorial University.
