Little acts of leadership go a long way
What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?
A fundamental shift in the way I understand and relate to nature.
Why are you passionate about sustainability? What was the moment or event that made you decide to become a 'change maker' in your field?
I've always felt the deepest satisfaction by doing something purposeful, something that makes people happier or the world better. Bit by bit I've understood that little acts of leadership go a long way, and there is always room for one more voice encouraging people to act well.
Why is leadership for sustainability is important?
Unfortunately I think plenty of decisions are made for short-term gain and self interest. We need people to think beyond themselves and lead for the common good.
What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?
Align my everyday actions in a way that better aligns with my values. Act faster, get louder, be bolder, have fun.
