We want to say a welcome to our new member of staff, Catriona! Catriona started with us in mid-January. Working part-time, she will be taking forward our campaigning and communications work.
Catriona grew up on the shores of the Cromarty Firth. After her undergraduate degree in Social Anthropology, she worked for several years in community development in Scotland and Aotearoa/New Zealand. In 2018, she made a move across the Atlantic to Canada and completed a Master’s in Political Ecology at the University of Victoria on Vancouver Island. Whilst there, she worked for the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions and helped teach university courses in the School of Environmental Studies. She has most recently been self-employed, researching aspects of food production, rewilding and repeopling across Scotland.
Catriona has been a board trustee for 2050 Climate Group, Scotland’s youth climate group, and is currently a trustee of the Pebble Trust, an organisation focussed on climate action in the Highlands and Islands.
In her spare time she likes writing, running, climbing and generally being outside.
