I’ve been working in the environment and sustainability movement since 1993, as both an NGO volunteer, and in government. I’ve been a speaker, guest lecturer, activist, and worked in both grassroots community development and organisational change for sustainability roles.
My expertise is drawn from the school of life, the real world – using a range of methods to communicate complex ideas and translating it from ‘sustainability-speak’ to a variety of audiences; supporting others to bring about change; and helping people with understanding the issues so they can make better decisions..
But over time, I have become increasingly frustrated that we have not yet – not really – communicated the bigger sustainability challenge picture to people.
It’s my quest to discover how to ignite the concern within people to understand the need for action on the sustainability challenge by rapidly increasing sustainability literacy.
I want to share what I’ve learned over nearly twenty years in this caper, and bring you the kinds of great examples of change-making communication I’m finding – within and beyond the sustainability sphere – to arm you with better ways of getting your message across.
