Hannah works with the Bioregional Oxfordshire team and provides support for a number of projects. Her current focus is on the development of Oxfordshire Greentech, a low-carbon business network, and the creation of a One Planet Action Plan for Oxfordshire.
Prior to joining Bioregional Hannah studied music at the University of Oxford as an undergraduate but quickly realised her passion for climate change mitigation surpassed that for music. After a year out where she wrote for the ecology section of a parish magazine, volunteered in the advocacy department of Tearfund charity, and started a diocesan inter-church eco-project, she decided to undertake a master’s to reskill herself.
Hannah then gained a Master’s with Distinction in Environment, Development and Policy from the University of Sussex. Her dissertation incorporated three months of ethnographic research in Transition Town Totnes, where she assessed the correlation between environmentally friendly behaviour and human wellbeing.
Outside work, Hannah attempts poetry, is ferociously keen on playing ultimate frisbee, is somewhat alright at piano, flute, and voice, and enjoys exploratory countryside walks.
