We've all got to get out there and sell the vision of a sustainable, connected compassionate world
What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?
Inspiration, resilience and a great new network!
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 I not be? Once I comprehended the impact that our current way of living has on the planet, there is no choice but to pursue a more sustainable way of living, and try to convince others to come along. As I get older, and more educated, I realise more and more that I can't leave it to others to make the changes, we've all got to get out there and sell the vision of a sustainable, connected compassionate world!
Why is leadership for sustainability is important?
We can't keep going the way we are, and it's going to take some genuine leadership to change paths!
What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?
First things first - finish my PhD. The next step is unclear, but I've got some great ideas after the course.
