I live with my three sons between the mountains of Eryri and the Irish sea - who would want to be anywhere else?! I've worked within the public and third sectors for 15 years across a number of projects from supporting vulnerable children, adults and families to education and youth work, from sustainable hospitality to biodynamic gardening and currently, as a community climate action facilitator within a regional Climate Action Fund (Lottery) project. I enjoy being musically and lyrically creative, being in large bodies of water and scaling various rock formations.View all ambassadors
In your view, what do our leaders here in Wales, the UK and around the world need to do to solve climate change?
Our leaders need to legislate to a) stop non-renewable fuel extraction, b) to stop ecocidal farming practices and c) to better fund the regeneration of our soils, peatlands and woodlands.
Why have you become a Climate Cymru ambassador?
To be more involved in the ongoing, vital conversations that our families, communities and leaders need to be having about the climate emergency and co-creating adaptive practices.
As a nation, what do you feel we need to do to truly influence change?
Wales must continue to facilitate the development of public and community owned renewable energy projects and be far more ambitious and holistic in setting agricultural, environmental and public health and wellbeing policy.
What makes you optimistic for the future with regards to climate change?
Thinking of the future in terms of several generations away allows me to keep working to challenge and change our damaging and over-consumptive ways of living. I am regularly buoyed by small local efforts to grow food, to clear litter, to share resources and to support one another.
