Why am I an OPEN fellow?

I helped to co-found OPEN in 2017 out of a passion for helping aspiring and practising change agents to amplify their individual and collective impact. I’m proud to be an OPEN Fellow and Board Member, and to be part of its amazing community of sustainability educators and practitioners.

How can I help change agents?

My focus is on understanding what barriers hold change agents back from achieving the results that they desire and helping them to develop skills and effective strategies to overcome these barriers.
