“Solutions for the Planet puts the keys back in the hands of the younger generation. The news can be extremely overwhelming and being able to solve the worlds sustainable problems might seem like a far fetch. However, S4TP unlocks your creativity and sparks ideas we would have never considered. It gives you a platform where young people can be heard and begin to realise that we all have the potential to find creative answers.”

My background is in education. I have worked as a primary school teacher and previously worked with children and young people around the world at a variety of summer camps. My role as Big Ideas Programme Coordinator means I get to meet lots of young people, teachers and mentors to help inspire them with new ideas to help save our planet. I love problem-solving and communicating with lots of different people. I enjoy being able to help ignite ideas and support people to creatively bring them to life.

When I am not at work I enjoy getting outdoors and playing lots of sports. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to travel to lots of new and exciting places and hope to continue this in the future.
