At 18 years old, Innes is the youngest team member. He lives in the far north of the Highlands and believe it or not, he lives on mainland Britain’s most northerly point; Dunnet Head! The challenges Innes faces as a young person living in a remote location has led him to become involved in organisations promoting youth democracy and sustainable development throughout Scotland and now he hopes to help us look at how we engage with young people.
When he isn’t working or studying he loves to get outdoors and explore the beauty rural Scotland is enveloped in.
