Environmentally-Induced Displacement is the focus of a presentation by recent college graduate Tilden Remerleitch, who is sharing her experiences in Ecuador on Sunday, May 12 from 11:30am-1pm, at the Guilford Community Church, after the service.
A recent UVM graduate, Remerleitch received a National Geographic Society’s early career grant to fund her community-based research on how natural disasters, climate change and resource extraction in Ecuador alter the complex relationships between people and place.
Remerleitch’s research has taken her to three primary eco-zones in Ecuador; the highlands, the Amazon jungle and the coast, where she has spent much of her time volunteering with an NGOs surveying the communities and coordinating volunteers in rebuilding villages destroyed by a 2016 earthquake using sustainable and anti-seismic bamboo material.
