Great Northern Peninsula Session Report SNCC report 2017.pdf
Sustainable Northern Coastal Communities (SNCC) is a collaborative project of the Harris Centre with the Grenfell Campus Office of Engagement and the Labrador Institute. The goal of this initiative is to coordinate and enhance a suite of teaching, research, and public
engagement activities across Memorial to better support and empower students, faculty, staff, external partners and communities to advance sustainable solutions to Northern issues and
challenges. The initial pilot areas for this initiative are the Great Northern Peninsula (GNP) and Southern Labrador regions of Newfoundland and Labrador (NL). Part of the initiative is the
provision of funding for research projects, and three projects have been approved for funding by the SNCC fund evaluation committee for the Great Northern Peninsula Region. This Engagement Session was organized to bring these project investigators to the region to build connections and encourage collaboration between researchers, industry partners, local stakeholders
and community residents.
