Delve into the academic and environmental projects Ann has contributed to throughout her career.
Vitality is the difference between a community thriving, rather than merely surviving. This project explores what makes a community thrive.
This project brought together female researchers, practitioners and civil society leaders from Women for Nature to collectively identify and discuss viable solutions for biodiversity loss. A biodiversity action agenda outlines their recommendations.
This project explores social capital, which is centered on human relationships with one another, individually, and collectively as a member of clubs, groups and networks.
This two-phased project explores municipal approaches and innovative local responses to climate change in British Columbia, using 11 leading climate innovators in the province as case studies.
This research project explores how to integrate museum communication practices and social media marketing strategies to improve research dissemination and knowledge transfer between academics and the wider public(s).
This collection of agendas were created to inform evidence-based policymaking around sustainable community development issues.
Ann developed trans-disciplinary e-dialogues using Internet communication technology to stimulate conversation concerning sustainable development issues that we currently face. This project attempts to push Internet communication technologies (ICTs) to be forces of light rather than dark.
Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) is the act of translating formal research knowledge and outcomes into useful knowledge for the public sphere, ideally leading to social change. It does so by bridging the gap between subject experts and researchers with policy-makers and practitioners, creating a reciprocal flow in the uptake of information. KMb includes knowledge synthesis, dissemination, transfer, exchange, and co-creation or co-production by researchers and knowledge users. My team use a variety of online channels to disseminate and mobilize our research outcomes to the public.
