It’s been an opportunity to turn ideas into action and clarify the change I want to make in the world
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'm passionate about sustainability because I think that nature is a great connector - to each other, to ourselves, to the world around us.
I love our natural world and I want to help others reconnect to those feelings of love, awe and excitement we get when we're in nature.
How did CSL play a role in directing your current path or project?
CSL gave me an opportunity to stop for a moment, look around, learn, discover and meet some wonderful and supportive people. I've been floating along collecting pieces of life and I feel like I've learnt how to start to put them all together.
