Amy Tran integrates sustainable practices into all of her work. As the academic coordinator of the Concordia Precious Plastic Project (CP3), Amy has focused on mentorship, knowledge-sharing, and collaboration. Amy has made knowledge surrounding plastic recycling and repurposing significantly more accessible by taking the necessary time to walk newcomers through the process and creating training resources. Amy has sought to connect issues of sustainability with space exploration by creating new collaborations between Space Concordia’s space health division, CP3, and Women in Engineering.
As an organizer of the 2022 Space Exploration conference (SPEX2022) and the Space2Earth student competition, as a challenge development associate for the How to Change the World program, and as a representative for Concordia at the World’s Challenge Challenge competition, Amy facilitated the implementation of more sustainable practices and themes.
Amy’s labour-intensive dedication towards sustainability has been an inspiration to her team members at both Space Concordia and CP3.
