I’ve spent a lot of time roving about Glen Doll, in the choir stalls of St John’s, or reading old books like John Ruskin, and thinking about the meaning of life. And all I can find is that the meaning of life is life. This is why I’m passionate about reconnecting people with nature. More about my thinking here…

Since January 2016 I have run the Wild Reekie Meetup Group, to engage people in Edinburgh with biodiversity and nature conservation. You can read about our adventures on its blog.

Since November 2015 I have run the Scottish Environment LINK Species Champions project.

From November 2015 I have run the Edinburgh Living Landscape twitter feed @edinlandscape (below) as a volunteer. I also help run its facebook page.

I’m excited about forestry as a sustainable industry in Scotland, and am working with Confor, the forest industry body, to improve diversity in its workforce. You can read my initial research report here.
