Glooscap First Nation, NS
Jerid is currently attending Dalhousie University, where he is pursuing a double major in Earth Science and Environmental Sustainability, He is working toward obtaining his Professional Environmental Geoscientist certification. Jerid has lived in Nova Scotia for his whole life, and mainly grew up on Glooscap First Nation, just outside of the Annapolis Valley. Growing up in this community, he has always had an attachment to nature and the environment which is the reason he became interested in both the 20/20 Catalysts program and his current studies. He currently sits on the board of directors for Glooscap Ventures, which has allowed him to help his community grow and watch it move in a new direction. Jerid hopes that this can one day lead them to be a prime example of what can be accomplished with the combination of clean energy and our traditional knowledge.
