First name: Sarah
Short introduction: I am a second year student at the university of Leeds, studying BA education. My particular interest is in outdoor and sustainability education. I place inclusion and intersectionality at the centre of my practice and research: as a disabled person this is very important to me. I am looking for a year long placement to give me experience in the third sector , working around sustainable education
Education, skills knowledge and experience: I currently volunteer with greenpeace Leeds as a coordinator, where i help organise events and work with the press to get publicity for this. I am a member of my universities student staff climate coalition, where we campaign to improve provision for sustainable practice at the university. I have also recently started to become involved in the teach the future campaign, increasing the amount of environment knowledge taught in the curriculum. In my spare time i run a blog and instragram page, where i promote sustainable living for students, and make information about climate issues more accessible. My career goals are to work in the third sector, promoting climate education to a wider audience. I believe education is crucial to change opinions and spread information. On top of this im interested in how nature connectivity through outdoor education can lead to more sustainable lives so im interested in working with outdoor education providers too.
