Most of my work in sustainable development over the past twenty years or so has been in UK local government. For seven years I worked for Warwickshire County Council as Head of Environment and Resources. However after over 25 years in local government as an elected member or officer, I left Warwickshire and local government, at the end of 2011.
Since then I have devoted time to local and national charities and voluntary organizations working in the sustainability field including as a Trustee of the Barracks Lane Community Garden, and from 2012-18 as a Trustee of Garden Organic, the last two years as Chair.
As the climate crisis has deepened I have turned to a more campaigning role, and was a member of the Project Board which produced the Oxfordshire Friends of the Earth report Fast Forward on what we need to do now if we are to get the county to’ zero carbon’ by 2040.
