EMERALD SPEAKER SERIES: Kelcie Miller-Anderson

The Emerald Speaker Series welcomes past Emerald Awards Finalists and Recipients to share an inspirational message about the environment. 

Kelcie Miller-Anderson is one of the Emerald Awards’ youngest and most inspirational recipients. At the age of 15, Kelcie began her research into developing novel remediation methods for the Alberta Oil Sands. Since receiving her Emerald Award in 2013, she has gone on to be recognized as of Canada’s Top 20 Under 20, Next 36, a Great Canadian Game Changer, and one of Canada’s Top Energy Innovators. Now 21, she has capitalized on her natural remediation methods to found her first company, MycoRemedy. Apart from aiming to solve some of our environmental challenges here at home, she has set her sights on remediating the world, the natural way, by committing a portion of MycoRemedy’s profits to fund the remediation of ecological sensitive areas around the globe.

In the first Emerald Speaker Series instalment, join Kelcie as she explores Alberta’s innovative spirit through the lens of her own personal experience. Kelcie delivered her inspiring speech at the 25th Annual Emerald Awards in June 2016.
