KEYNOTE SPEAKER | CARLOTTA JAMES
Carlotta James will share the story of the Monarch Ultra, a 4,300 km ultra marathon from Peterborough to central Mexico that took over seven weeks to complete in the fall of 2019. The relay team followed the migratory journey of the endangered Monarch butterfly as a way to raise awareness of the plight of Monarchs and to inspire communities into conservation action.
Carlotta James is an eco-landscaper, community outreach specialist, and long-distance runner. Carlotta graduated from the University of Toronto with an Honours B.A. in International Relations and Political Science, where she subsequently was awarded a scholarship under the Canada-China Scholars’ Exchange Program to study advanced Chinese at Yunnan University. In addition to her academic interests, Carlotta’s natural curiosity in the global community has led her to work & travel in China, South Africa, England, Australia, and Mexico.
Carlotta currently lives in Peterborough with her family, where her passion for environmental sustainability is evident through her community work with Peterborough Pollinators. Carlotta is co-founder of Three Sisters Natural Landscapes, an eco-landscaping social enterprise dedicated to creating pollinator-friendly gardens in Peterborough and the Kawarthas. Carlotta is also co-founder of the Monarch Ultra, an international relay run, documentary and conservation project aimed at connecting communities across North America with common goals of Earth stewardship & biodiversity conservation. When Carlotta is not building gardens, she is found running along forest trails in Peterborough with her family and friends!
