Dan Wilton at Huxley-Parlour for ClientEarth
I am supporting Dan Wilton to produce the exhibit The Very Fire They Sit Beside at Huxley-Parlour Gallery for ClientEarth. The Very Fire They Sit Beside is the result of a journey across Europe by photographer Dan Wilton to document the impact of the coal industry on the landscape and communities who live in its shadow. Sale of the work will benefit ClientEarth.
The Global Youth Statement with COY16
I was Policy co-lead responsible for delivery of The Global Youth Statement: the policy paper for the youth constituency of The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Drafted from consultation with more than 47,000 global youth, The Global Youth Statement was submitted to World Leaders at the Conference of Youth (COY16) and the Conference of the Parties (COP26).
Wild Walls & COY16 with UK Youth for Nature
I supported UK Youth for Nature in the production of Natural Kingdom: Wild Walls campaign. The work commissioned a series of murals across the UK highlighting the biodiversity and habitat decline of that area. These engaged thousands of people across the UK on the issues of biodiversity decline and its role in climate change mitigation. Check out the campaign here.
I also represented UKY4N on the programme Working Group for the United Nations Climate Change Conference of Youth 2021 (COY16), curating program content, speakers and liaising with other working groups as part of the Coordination Team.

"This is a piece of work that conjures extreme, transcendent sensation out of thin air – adrenaline, hate, joy, danger, awe. It’s a show which, in the present, fizzes with energy which seems to erupt from the Earth itself, and which, in retrospect, is far more than the sum of its parts. It’s dynamite theatre that kicks fearlessly through the boundaries of performance itself to deliver something so cutting-edge that they haven’t even invented words for it yet." The Student Room
"An outstanding achievement from all involved, and an extraordinary vision that is very convincingly brought to life by the Circumference performers. Staged is a phenomenal, truly genre-twisting feat of circus, storytelling and psychology – you’ll be re-examining this show in your head for days afterwards." The Skinny
