Darlene Seto

Hailing from the blue prairie skies of Alberta, Darlene is a transplant to the Vancouver area, originally moving to complete her MA in Environmental Studies from UBC. Her education and professional experience have ranged from the macro to the micro: working in Washington DC on Canada-US relations, studying sustainable development strategies for the Quebec government, and analyzing zero waste options for the City of Vancouver.

As a social and environmental justice advocate, Darlene is active in Vancouver’s food community. Her work aims to link her research and policy background with a food justice framework, working to bringing the voices of the grassroots to decision-making and evaluation in social services.

Her downtime juggles between early mornings on her yoga mat, cycling and hiking adventures in BC, and solo dance parties in the kitchen.
