In 2017 I became a Director of the Centre for Human Ecology (CHE). I stood down from the Board in 2021 to allow the organisation to expand and me to focus on human ecology. CHE continues to be my ‘home’ where I am developing co-operative education, building connections and fostering solidarity in response to the climate crisis, and deepening human ecological understanding within society and my own practice.
Current – co-operative member of CHE contributing thought-leadership, writing, project and organisational management, facilitation and research.
2014-2017 – I worked independently as a transdisciplinary researcher and activist on a variety of projects – in my own community, with Lateral North, as part of the u.lab and CAMINA communities and the Scottish Rural Parliament.
