Three CIRAIG students laureats of the student scientific communication contest “Valorisez les sciences!”

Last Friday, prizes were awarded to the winners of the scientific communication contest organized by Institut des sciences environnementales de l’UQÀM (ISE-UQAM), Réseau inondations intersectoriel du Québec (RIISQ), Centre interdisciplinaire de recherche en opérationalisation du développement durable (CIRODD) and Réseau intersectoriel de recherche en santé de l’Université du Québec (RISUQ). The contest invited students to submit media that would communicate contemporary socio-ecological issues where the theme was “Intersectoral ways to understand, act and transform”.

The first prize was awarded Catherine Lalongé (M. Sc. Environnement, UQAM) and Lysanne Blais-Gingras (M. Sc. Gestion, UQAM). The students wrote a blog post and created a pamphlet to communicate the life cycle impacts of grocery bags.

In addition to winning first prize, the jury also offered Catherine and Lysanne the CIRODD thematic prize in operationnalization of sustainability.

The second prize was awarded ex-aequo to Ivan Viveros-Santos (PhD en génie chimique, Polytechnique Montréal). Ivan created a Github webpage titled “Quel vin fera-t-il demain ? Les aires viticoles et la question de l’adaptation au changement climatique” which summarized his PhD research.

We would like to congratulate all the participants and would like to sincerely thank ISE-UQAM, RIISQ, CIRODD AND RISUQ for coordinating this contest.
