Sustainability is about being connected to our earth and knowing the partnership we share
What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?
I have the will and the passion, but CSL gave me my legs and feet to get there.
Why are you passionate about sustainability? What was the moment or event that made you decide to become a 'change maker' in your field?
Sustainability wasn’t a word I was born knowing, however the concept was natural right from the beginning. Ultimately it’s about being connected to our earth and knowing the partnership we share. Sustainability isn’t only about our environment; it’s about how we interact between one another, and ensuring that we are evolving positively. It gives me purpose and helps to explain my desire to change our world for the better.
Why is leadership for sustainability important?
We are in a revolution right now. We need need to lead the way for sustainability!
What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?
I would like to cultivate a more sustainable culture within our organisation which will empower the people to put their dreams into action, and grow more food for the community. I would like to inspire more people to be involved in community gardens and find the diverse values that they hold within.
