Christina Burns is a Research Assistant for Carbon Talks. As an Environmental Studies & Political Science graduate of the University of Victoria, Christina is especially interested in environmental psychology and how society can reduce its consumption of unsustainable materials.
She was most recently working with Zero Waste Scotland, giving her insight into community engagement and behaviour change best practice. In previous years, she has worked with the Fraser Basin Council in BC and New Zealand’s Cycling Advocates Network.
Christina is a board member of Mosqoy, a charitable organization that supports sustainable economic development of remote indigenous communities in the Peruvian Andes. Locally, she is also a member of the Waste Committee of the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation. When she is not working with Carbon Talks or volunteering, Christina can be found hiking on the North Shore, baking bread, or hunched over a good book.
