Victoria, British Columbia
Grace Nosek has been awarded a fellowship to join the Environmental Law Centre in Victoria, British Columbia where she will work on and study law and policy initiatives aimed at ensuring that all citizens have access to and are empowered to participate in government assessment processes of energy pipeline proposals. While at HLS, Grace co-authored, The Dating Game: How Confusing Food Date Labels Lead to Food Waste in America, a comprehensive policy report produced in partnership between the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic and the Natural Resources Defense Council. She also presented on legal hurdles to childhood nutrition before a non-profit based in Boston and made a short film explaining the problem of food waste in America. Grace has worked with the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic, the Program on Law and Social Change, the Harvard Law Documentary Studio, and the Harvard Prison Legal Assistance Project. She has complemented her education through internships at the Department of Justice’s Environment and Natural Resources Division, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and the White House Council on Environmental Quality. To supplement her legal and policy research and advocacy, Grace has written and published a young adult novel, Ava of the Gaia, the first in a series of environmentally themed books.
