Andrée Tremblay

PhD Student

Junior Associate

Loyola Sustainability Research Centre

Today, more than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas; in the province of Quebec, this number reaches over 80%. While nature connectedness is a strong predictor of pro-environmental behaviours, many people living in cities have limited experience and connection with the natural world and with the ways our food is produced. Andrée's masters' project uses garden-based pedagogy as well as consumer experience theories to create workshops and spaces designed to increase awareness and greater connections with our natural environments.

Andrée's areas of special interest include the fields of environmental communication, memory, sensory and care studies, urban design, and the influence and power of storytelling as a catalyst for the potential for societal change. She is a recipient of a Concordia Sustainability Action Fund Award and the Éric St-Pierre Award. Andrée is pursuing this work in the Department of Communication Studies at Concordia University under the supervision of Dr. Kim Sawchuck.  

The title of Andrée's project is mind.heart.mouth. Collective gardening, Design, and Community Care.
