Students act as environmental ambassadors in Nova Scotia


A group of Middlesex Community College students recently acted as Lowell conservation ambassadors at a conference in Nova Scotia hosted by the Gulf of Maine Institute. The institute coordinates a regional initiative to inspire young people to engage in local environmental projects in an effort to maintain the gulf, which stretches from Cape Cod to Nova Scotia. Traditionally, the institute has worked with high school students as ambassadors, but it chose Middlesex as its first collegiate partner because of its diverse, urban location within the watershed. At the conference, the student ambassadors studied environmental issues with activists, scientists, and educators. Next, they will work locally to create a yearlong project aimed at having a positive environmental effect within Lowell.
