I developed the confidence to go out and start doing
What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?
I developed a trust in my inner-power, and the confidence to go out and start doing.
Why are you passionate about sustainability? What was the moment or event that made you decide to become a 'change maker' in your field?
I never had a singular moment of clarity. My passion for sustainability has grown over time from an awe of our natural world and my deep connection to community, culture and spirit. A passion for sustainability is part of what makes me, rather than something I came to.
Why is leadership for sustainability important?
We need to change our lives, culture and politics to guarantee a sustainable, fair and just future, and this change requires good leadership.
What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?
For the moment I plan to live the with uncertainty of what to do next! I'm always on the lookout for new projects and people to connect with, but I'm also working on getting my personal life as grounded and sustainable as possible before moving on to the next phase.
