The WWF Arctic Programme

Monique Newton

Senior Manager

WWF Arctic Coordinating Team

For 20 years, Monique has contributed to the nonprofit and NGO sector, including on helping to design and run a funding programme focused on capacity and accountability within the Canadian nonprofit sector.

Monique has a BA in Cultural Anthropology (U of Toronto) and an MA in Policy Studies and Public Administration from (Queen’s). She is also a trained mediator and active member of the Canadian Institute for Conflict Resolution and volunteers her time with Community Mediation Ottawa.

I have become increasingly committed to studying conflict and how humans heal from conflict because, for me, our capacity to heal and transform conflict, including our relationship with nature, is inextricably linked to our capacity and willingness to address climate change.
