Rachel S Forbes

Research Assistant

Rachel Forbes joined POLIS during the summer of 2006 as a research and project assistant. She worked primarily on marketing the book Planet U: Sustaining the World, Reinventing the University by Michael M'Gonigle and Justine Starke, and also with Jamie Biggar and Susanne Porter-Bopp on laying the foundation for a planetary university movement. Key to these initiatives was building a global network of academics, political and public figures as well as environmental, social and student groups who are allied with the cause. Rachel has a BA (honours) in Urban Geography with a minor in Communications from Simon Fraser University. She is currently working toward finishing her Bachelor of Laws at the University of Victoria.
