Satya’s passion lies in combining community engagement, research and policy change to support civic engagement and social change for healthy, just and sustainable food systems. Her interest in social and environmental justice started over 20 years ago and has ranged from community gardens to energy efficiency and active transportation. Since first joining the Ecology Action Centre as Senior Coordinator in 2015, Satya has found her true calling as a policy geek. When not writing policy briefs, Satya is often learning and experimenting with recipes, growing, and preserving food. Satya holds a B.Sc. from Dalhousie University and a Magisteriate in Environmental Studies (Urban Planning) from York University with a focus on adult environmental education.
