 The 2017 AGM: SUSTAIN… 

AGM 2017 Attendeesto the best of your ABILITY.

 

MUNPA’s 2017 AGM took place on June 8th at Lester’s Farm Chalet. Reflecting our location, the theme was “SUSTAIN…to the best of your ABILITY. The speakers during the morning session were Dr. Max Liboiron, Department of Geography, and Emily Bland and Taylor Young, from Memorial’s award-wining Enactus Group.

Max Liboirn - Enactus Group PresentationMax Liboiron led off, telling us about her ongoing research on the accumulation of plastics and microplastics in our ocean. Emily Bland and Taylor Young followed, explaining how they their group had not only developed Rubbermaid container-sized hydroponics units that could produce sufficient fresh vegetables for two adults for one year in northern climes but also how they had arranged for the units to be produced and distributed by social enterprises like Choices for Youth.

Sonja Knutson - Scholars at Risk PresentationAfter lunch, Sonja Knutson, Director of MUN’s International Centre talked about Memorial’s involvement in the Scholars at Risk programme, designed to help scholars whose political views had not only rendered them unemployable but also put them at risk of being imprisoned. You will be hearing more about Scholars at Risk. We, along with other units, are active supporters.

The remainder of the afternoon was devoted to the annual general meeting. As usual, we elected a new slate of officers and board of directors, found under the Directors Menu on the left.
