Incisive, thoughtful and whole-hearted leaders are our best and only hope for a planet which is straining under the heavy burdens of our ecological, social, cultural and economic recklessness.

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

I was inspired by people's life stories, impacts, and passion for creating more good in the world.

Why are you passionate about sustainability?

Sustainability has always been my normal, more or less. I'm fascinated by the world - its places, people, complexities, and simplicities. I'd like this world to last, forever or at least for ages. To my mind, striving to live more sustainably is not really a choice, but an imperative. That's not to say it's easy, or that I get it sufficiently right very often, but that in the striving there is a great deal of power and possibility. Sustainability is all about the striving.

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

CSL is an instant community, a crew of fascinating and enthusiastic people doing incredible things in the world. It is expansive. Writing a doctorate - my current pursuit - can be a little like dancing on the head of a pin, focussed in on a niche of a niche - in my case love and damaged urban landscapes. CSL was a weekly chance to kick down those doors of specificity and think about sustainability in all kinds of ways, to explore, question, celebrate, write and play.

Why is sustainability leadership important?

Incisive, thoughtful and whole-hearted leaders are our best and only hope for a planet which is straining under the heavy burdens of our ecological, social, cultural and economic recklessness.

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

I am increasingly convinced of how much can be achieved through unearthing, sharing and celebrating stories. The surprising, beautiful, inspiring and sustaining. We are a storied civilisation, so finding and telling good stories of who and where we are, and might be, is one of the central pillars of sustainability. With this conviction as my guide, I am going to write more, share more, and be more.

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

Effervescent, Beginning, Connection
