Amber Bennett

She led the groundbreaking Alberta Narratives Project and supported much of the foundational work to pilot and build Re.Climate.

Andrea Loewen Nair

Andrea Loewen Nair grew up five degrees south of the Arctic Circle so it’s not surprising that she feels very connected with the natural world around her. Now in London, ON with her family, she has infused her need to keep the environment front-of-mind as they built and run a family medical practice, renovated a historic home, and as they move around to get her teenaged sons to their many activities. Cycling before bike lanes were a thing, you can usually find Andrea on her electric cargo, “Betty bike,” riding around London as she conducts business and volunteers for local environmental groups. The Nair family was the winner of the first Live Net Zero competition.
