Eugene Guribye (2022)

In 1999, Eugene Guribye found a kilo of cocaine washed up on the shores of a beach in Galapagos National Park. This was to be the start of a long journey that would eventually lead to the establishment of the first beach clean-up organization in Southern Norway on the other side of the globe.

Eugene Guribye is a social anthropologist and Research Professor at NORCE and is a leading expert on how people collaborate. He has conducted fieldwork among eco-pirates in the Galapagos islands, refugees in Greece and homeless sex workers in Norway.

You will find him on the TEDxArendal stage on November 4!
