From the Earth to Everyday... The Importance of Communicating Geoscience in a Changing World 
With Amanda McCallum


Amanda McCallum is a geologist, prospector, writer and educator. She is the founder of Ignite Education Inc., a communications consultancy company specializing in geoscience education, outreach, training and public relations. She is the author of the Minerals Guide Newfoundland and Labrador and the Women in Mining Career Connections Guide. Amanda is also the principal author of Discovery Global Geopark’s application dossier, in which she led this international project to secure Newfoundland and Labrador’s first UNESCO Global Geopark designation.


Amanda’s love for the outdoors inspired her to pursue a career in Earth science. It was the rocky hills, rugged coastline and inlets of her childhood hometown that first sparked an interest in geology. Growing up on the island of Ramea, located on Newfoundland’s southwest coast ignited curiosity in “The Rock’s” natural environment. Amanda is an avid hiker and enjoys travelling and exploring. She lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.
