I have initiated/led or project managed a wide variety of sustainability and climate change projects, now for many a moon.Turning ideas into action, climate policy, research and building diverse relationships is important to me, as is collaboration. I also enjoy working across sectors which probably makes me a mistress of none.
HOW DO YOU SAY YOUR NAME? It’s one of those Irish names and a ‘K’ would have been great! ‘Think’ Keira Knightley ( – whimsically written, but works a treat) or Storm Ciara.
WHERE ARE YOU NOW? Right now, I’m based in Cumbria where some of my family live. But, I’m Hong Kong born and bred – some of my family are still there.
WHY EDENWORKS? After working with the business sector on climate change, I tried with a few others, to bring to HK the EdenProject. Then, I worked globally/ Asia with the interfaith sector around the Paris Agreement. Keeping ‘Eden’ made sense. And it works.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY NET ZERO? The 2015 Paris Agreement set a global goal to reach net zero emissions in the second half of the century. We reach ‘net zero’ when there is an overall balance between emissions produced and emissions removed from the atmosphere. To get there – we need immediate, real reductions and sinks today.
HAPPY WONDER: Mused in Mustang, awed in Cumbria and many more.
