To learn about some of the work being done by student activists at the Université du Québec à Montréal, I visited a small but feisty focal point of student militancy known as GRIP-UQAM.

In these days of impending climate chaos and and shrinking biodiversity, many of the student groups sponsored by the GRIP are working on projects aimed at reversing environmental destruction — with a notable focus on transforming the wasteful processes that go into the production of food.

To get the low-down on these goings-on, Unofficial Transcript spoke to GRIP-UQAM coordinator Jocelyn Darou, in her sunny downtown office.
