Its not enough to talk about a better world, we have to show it's possible
What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?
I found a truly inspiring network of friends and supporters.
Why are you passionate about sustainability? What was the moment or event that made you decide to become a 'change maker' in your field?
How can you not be passionate about sustainability?! We all are in our ways whether we know it or not. We all want to create a better future. I never decided to become a change-maker but I feel a drive to step up to the plate because it has to be done! "If not you - who?!"
Why is leadership for sustainability important?
Leadership for sustainability is important because its not enough to talk about a better world, we have to show it's possible.
What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?
I'll continue along the path for as long as it goes. I've spent the last year building a young farmers network and two acre market garden and I can see that the future looks bright for us.
