Heather Govender, Program Manager - Environmental Education

Heather graduated from the University of Toronto with a PhD in Cell & Systems Biology, and Collaborative Program in Environmental Studies. She is an Ontario Certified Teacher and a passionate environmentalist and nature-lover both personally and professionally.
Since 2014, Heather has worked in the non-profit sector designing, developing, and implementing environmental education programming for delivery in schools and in the community. She strives to live her life as close to zero waste as possible, and shares her green living tips and tricks with family, friends, and the public through means ranging from casual conversations, to educational workshops, to formal presentations. Anyone who participates in her green living workshops or presentations can expect to learn how their personal “garbage footprints” relate to over-consumption of the earth’s resources, our growing problem of plastic pollution, and climate change.
