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.
