Experience and Ethos

Our planet is a wonder. The array of life supported within our biosphere is unknown to ourselves anywhere else in the universe. A reliance on fossil fuels, Western-style levels of consumption and a throwaway culture is endangering this wonder.

FuturEcoLogic responds to the need for sustainability capacity building, helping people understand, engage and take action, and inspiring change. Across my career, I have worked in an expert capacity for various bodies and with large complex organisations, to street-level activism and community engagement.

There are lots of me’s out there and this gives me hope for the future. We do not underestimate the scale of the challenge, but recognise that collectively a shift is happening. This shift is as much about the heart as the mind, and it is the key to unlock how and what we value. Moving towards a sustainable future means value beyond money, ensuring we capture joy, richness of culture and connectedness with others.

We can rapidly increase the amount of climate action being taken at all levels of society, decarbonising energy, closing loops of consumption and waste, mitigating and adapting to change. FuturEcoLogic aims to build knowledge, enable action and share learning for everyone as we respond to necessary shifts that we all need to achieve.
