Andrew is a MSc. Geography and Environmental Management student studying restored peatlands. He got the ball rolling on The Radicle after writing for Imprint and other publications in the community. He felt they didn’t cover the topics that interested him as an Environment student, and were too limited to strictly news. He wanted a place for Environment students to express themselves in more creative ways and to foster a greater sense of belonging and community in the Faculty.

Ashoke is an ERS 3B undergraduate student with a minor in Philosophy. He helped get the ball rolling on The Radicle because he believes in order to make environmental activism effective, not only does it have to be accurate but it needs to be engaging. His goal is to make environmentalism more mainstream by fostering a space where different mediums of environmentalism can be combined to create a community capable of inciting change.
Lowine is a PhD student, working on socio-ecological sustainability issues in small islands. She took part in the Radicle, not as a first step toward world domination but to give students a voice beyond the “publish or perish” narrative. She’s particularly interested in photography and hope that other students will use this platform to set their creative mind free.
