How the Climate Reality Project changed me

This summer saw the 39th Climate Reality Leadership Corps training take place in Los Angeles. Attracting more than 2,200 future climate leaders from over 40 countries, the Climate Reality Project training was designed to inspire ‘acts of leadership’ in local communities and beyond. Established by former U.S. Vice President Al …

Love letter to London

Since 2010, I’ve been writing about London. And since 2009, I’ve been living in London – firstly North of the river in Tufnell Park, then South in Wimbledon, then finally West in Ealing (sorry, East). That’s almost a decade of London living. So it really did feel like the end …

Meme for 2015

It’s that time again: when I struggle to remember everything that’s happened through a post-Christmas haze of carbohydrates and vodka and whittle it all down to this niftily-structured end-of-year meme.
