I am currently working as a Community Manager of a Coworking Space and spend a lot of my time there trying to implement zero waste schemes. Previously living in Revelstoke and London, I have worked in a variety of administrative, events and logistics roles for non-profits and in the entertainment industries. My efforts are now directed towards environmental protection and in particular I am interested in food waste, plastic pollution and active transportation. I am a keen explorer of the BC wilderness and love to camp, ski, hike and bike. I am excited to be a part of this program and develop some ideas towards fighting climate change.
Hi! My name is Anuki and I am a Resource and Environmental Management major and a Sociology minor at SFU going into my 4th year this fall. I’m a member of Embark at SFU in the social sustainability cohort and we spread awareness about climate change, diversity and inclusion and sustainability. I am Sri Lankan Canadian and 20 years old. I love hiking, one of my favourite hikes I’ve done was at lighthouse park. I also enjoy photography, I mainly do portraits but I also take photos of nature and landscapes.
