Royal Saskatchewan Museum


My research program has two broad themes: the role of systems thinking in sustainability work, and the potential impact of sustainability issues on cultural evolution. Some of my projects explore the value of different types of heritage, including cultural or living heritage, as a basis for sustainable community development. I am especially interested in food security questions and the role that ecomuseums or “museums without walls” can play as community-driven organizations. I am also studying the relationship between personal creativity and nature connection through a unique research and outdoor education program called Songs for Nature. This program is not only creating wonderful songs; it is also providing important insights about the value of nature-based education. For more details visit:
