WHAT DO I DO NOW?
I currently work in Government as a policy adviser in the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs.
I have a passion for sustainable development as the solution to interlinked environmental, social and economic problems we currently face. That's not to say its all bad, there are plenty of great ideas already our there (like this website!) and I'm an optimist by nature.
WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DO I HAVE?
I graduated with a masters degree in Leadership for Sustainable Development in 2008 and also have an undergraduate degree in environmental science.
WHAT OTHER EXPERIENCE DO I HAVE?
I generally try to practice what I preach, and in that vain have started a network to try to lead in my main hobby: triathlons! As a group we try to compete with a low impact on the environment (through our food, kit etc); and influence events we take part in to be more green. www.webjam.com/racinggreen
WHAT AM I LIKE?
I'm pretty easy going and friendly so get in touch if you think I can help. I'm generally pretty busy but keen to help out if I can.
