ESST Community Leadership Award

Emilia Ganslandt 

Awarded to the ESST student in recognition of demonstrated excellence in learning, and exceptional leadership in contributing to a sustainable community and planet during the past year through community initiatives within Acadia or beyond. A fruit tree is planted on campus in his or her name, and the person is recognized on a plaque in the ESST Student Lounge.

Emilia (with Dr. Glyn Bissix, ESST professor) is an enthusiastic and energetic advocate for community-building and sustainability on campus and in the community, bringing a critical perspective to everything she does. In the past year Emilia was a key driver of the successful campaign to get the administration and the Acadia Student Union to work together to install water bottle filling stations in the residences to promote the use of refillable water bottles. She is also the Advocacy Coordinator of the ESST Student Society and is doing a double major in ESST and Economics.
