UKSSD Network Director
I’m Network Director at UK Stakeholders for Sustainable Development (UKSSD), an initiative Bioregional helped to set up in 2014 and now hosts.
UKSSD is a cross-sector network of organisations working together to drive action on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the UK. I work with our partners to mobilise the influence and expertise of our network to have an impact on progress towards the SDGs in the UK.
In 2018 I coordinated the inputs of over 100 organisations on a project which resulted in the first comprehensive assessment of UK performance on the SDGs. The report, Measuring up, provides organisations in the UK with a starting point for collective action on the biggest sustainability challenges of our time.
I’ve worked in a variety of community and social justice NGOs, primarily focused on education, poverty alleviation and employability. I have a BA in Fine Art and an MSc in Sustainable Development.
I’m an amateur gardener and fair-weather walker – I love nothing better than a sunny day outside in the Surrey Hills where I live.
