Marco Reid

Marco was born in Red Deer, Alberta. Marco would later move to Calgary enroll at the University of Calgary and complete a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. He was one of fourteen students pioneering the newly offered Certificate of Sustainability Studies at the University of Calgary, the first of its kind offered in Canadian Universities. Marco’s key interest in sustainability is to bring harmony to nature and society. He believes that bringing sustainability practices into daily living at home, in leisure, or in the workplace, will be integral to mitigate the effects of Climate Change.

Marco has amassed an immense network of other leaders in Sustainability and Climate Change initiatives across Alberta and British Columbia. He plans to use his network politically to pursue action at a policy level in all levels of government. Marco plans to be a Provincial candidate in 2019.

Marco works in Account Management for a Property Services company. He also is an active researcher who has mixed interest in anything from Community Garden Models to Mental Health. He also operates a small Landscaping and Gardening business that is dedicated to bringing nature and sustainability into people’s homes or workplaces.
