Emmelie Brownlee

One Planet Communications Manager

Emmelie leads on communications for One Planet Living. She works with our partners to share great stories that will inspire the creation of better places for people to live, work and do business.

Before joining Bioregional, Emmelie led on communications and events at The Schumacher Institute – a Bristol-based ‘think-and-do’ tank working towards a world of reducing inequality within planetary limits. She also worked as an independent writer producing articles on a range of sustainability topics, including low-carbon technology, environmental legislation, workplace behaviour change and community action.

From 2010 to 2011, Emmelie ran a project to document Bristol’s history of environmental action. She is the author of Bristol’s Green Roots , a book that shares the stories, lessons learned and sustainability achievements in the city over the last forty years.

In 2014, Emmelie co-founded Net Impact Bristol – a chapter of a global network for professionals that aims to empower members to drive sustainable change in their workplaces and through their careers. Outside of work, Emmelie enjoys cooking (and eating), cycling, being outdoors and justifies an addiction to Sci-Fi by claiming it’s the most progressive of TV genres.
