I am passionate about sustainability and the role of nature connection in wellbeing and health. I have previously developed education programmes across different sectors, and am currently Director of Bright Green Future, a leadership programme for young people based at the Centre for Sustainable Energy, that is focussed on increasing the diversity of the UK’s environmental sector.
My background is a mixture of science, education and media, with roles at the Save Our Seas Foundation, World Animal Protection, MTV, and a stint as a Primary School teacher.
A formative professional and personal moment was undertaking a training programme with a group called Natural Change, which gave me an introduction to the transformative effects of facilitated sessions in the outdoors.
My current key interests lie at the intersection of nature and culture, and how humans shape and are shaped by how we perceive and interact with the natural world around us.
