Kinross Chair in Environmental Governance
About the Kinross Chair
The Kinross Chair in Environmental Governance was established in 2010, through a $1 million philanthropic gift from the Kinross Gold Corporation.
It was established as part of the BetterPlanet Project – a fundraising campaign to help improve the quality of food, environment, health and communities around the world.
Candidates for the Chair are recognized Indigenous leaders, public servants, NGO leaders, business executives, or applied academics. Most importantly, they are thoughtful innovators and skilled communicators who have successfully bridged knowledge, policy, and practice.
The Kinross Chair in Environmental Governance sits within the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences and is linked to the interdisciplinary Major in Environmental Governance (Bachelor of Arts), the Master of Conservation Leadership, and the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute.
