After travelling around, I stumbled on a teaching job in a remote Kenyan village. I then did a degree in Ecology in Leeds. I have now taught in Leeds Primary schools for over 25 years.
It was these travel experiences that gave me a passion for social justice and caring for our fragile planet – knowing the effect that climate change will have on the most marginalised people of the world.
8 years ago, I became actively involved in Greenpeace and as a Greenspeaker, I have spoken to a wide range of audiences from KS1 assemblies to University students to Third Age clubs.
Based in: Leeds (because of being teacher I am unfortunately only able to deliver talks in evening and weekends)
Topics of interest: Any, but in particular climate change and plastics
Since I was 4 years old I have carried a stone in my pocket. A piece of Tigers Eye.
That is when my life-long interest in the natural world and Earth Science began.
I am fascinated by the oceans. Sadly, climate change and human activities are heavily impacting on our marine ecosystems.
I speak to organisations that want to make lasting changes by introducing sustainable and regenerative practices that positively impact on the environment, communities and wildlife.
I also run a world-renowned training and coaching business, specialising in Authentic Self and LGBT+ Inclusion (transgender & non-binary). I work with Fortune 500 companies, leading global organisations and individuals.
Based in: Huddersfield, West Yorkshire
Topics of interest: Plastic pollution, oceans, climate change, carbon footprint
I have spent most of my working life as a GP in the NHS, but also including time working as a volunteer doctor in Africa, and closer to home, driving a delivery van for a wholefood company.
I see the natural world with its incredible beauty and biodiversity as a God-given gift to humanity, and it frustrates and saddens me greatly when I continue to hear news of our persistent abuse and degradation of our amazing planet and the other living creatures with whom we share it.
Greenpeace has a great track record of both highlighting and standing up to this stupidity, so I am proud to swell the ranks and help more, now I have moved to semi-retirement and have the time to do so.
