Emma Bugg

Having already walked this earth for 16 years, Emma was born in 2009 when she accidentally enrolled in the Outdoor School program. After throwing her teammate and canoe on shore to win the skills competition, she had solidified her passion for the outdoors and knew she needed to tackle tougher challenges. A seven-month trip to New Zealand and Australia following high school then turned into a travel addiction that she has fed by going to Nicaragua, Honduras, Denmark, and Israel/Palestine. This travel addiction inspired her decision to work towards a bachelor’s degree in International Studies as well as fuelled her passion for social and environmental justice. She has since attended Generating Momentum and IMPACT Sustainability Training and worked as a Recycling Ambassador for the Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council. She is thrilled to be a part of Next Up and have the chance to be part of such an inspiring and mutually supportive community.
