Adam Brown

Sustainability Coordinator

Growing up exploring the ecosystems of the shorelines and forests of Cape Breton, Adam went on to formalize his scientific training with a BSc. (Hons) Chemistry from Cape Breton University before pursuing graduate studies in Biomedical Engineering at Dalhousie University. The next 6 years in multidisciplinary science education at Discovery Centre (Halifax) culminated in the role of Senior Science Educator Climate Action for GenAction – the Discovery Centre-led national youth climate action and education partnership to drive a cultural shift towards sustainability. Adam is enrolled in CBU’s MBA CED, with the academic and research goal of examining innovative solutions that promote sustainable community economic development. This academic and work experience, combined with a history as a volunteer firefighter and service on OH&S and Fire Safety committees, has led Adam to be CBU’s first Sustainability Coordinator, in the Department of Risk Management.
