Josephine Mo is entering her third year of a Combined Honours program, majoring in Sociology and minoring in French Studies, at the Glendon Campus of York University. Within the domain of sociology, she is particularly interested in studying issues of culture, education, environmentalism, and linguistics. As part of the team at IRIS, she is looking forward to contributing to the research from a sociological background as well as absorbing new insights on sustainability. She is mainly responsible for handling the technological aspect of the projects at IRIS, especially updating the IRIS and GAPS websites. In the course of her work, she has come into contact with an abundance of informative resources and in turn, has gained greater awareness of Canada's (including York University's) involvement in climate change activities. She aspires to a future career in the public or non-profit sector.
