Our society needs the right message, at the right time, in the right format and directed to the right audience for effective change to happen.

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

I received the support and tools to explore and develop my leadership style and potential.

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 can see how damaging our current lifestyles are to the planet and for our future. We all need to be part of the solution. In a previous role, I saw the change in attitude of several households when they were made aware of issues such as global warming, resource depletion, renewable energy and how they were each able to play a part in bringing about change. These were individuals who were previously ignorant of and opposed to any discussion on these topics. I realised the necessity of community awareness-raising and informing on these crucial issues.

Why is leadership for sustainability is important?

Our society needs the right message, at the right time, in the right format and directed to the right audience for effective change to happen.

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

I will continue working on how I can be most effective in creating behaviour awareness and change in my community.
