CSL has helped me clarify my direction and provides a great set of connections, skills and techniques for approaching challenges creatively.

What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL? 

Direction, connection and skills for approaching our collective sustainability challenges creatively

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 grew up partly in the country, which placed in me an appreciation for the natural environment from an early age. My faith and attempts to live frugally have also made me passionate about waste, the connection between how we view and use resources and social justice.

How did CSL play a role in directing your current path or project?

CSL has helped me clarify my direction and provides a great set of connections, skills and techniques for approaching challenges creatively.

In 25 words or less, tell us why leadership for sustainability is important.

You need to know what you stand for, and the role you can play – whether that’s leading or following.

What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?

Put the things we learnt into action so that I can achieve greater impact in whatever I do.

What are three words you would use to describe the Fellowship Program?

A creative inspiring sandpit
