Kirsti Norris brings together her intermingled past of being involved in stopping and slowing damage to nature through taking action at the Newbury Anti-Bypass protests, marching against the Criminal Justice Bill, and campaigning for 15 years with Greenpeace. In a dual-life she worked in the private sector, running campaigns to meet environmental management system targets, swiftly followed by working in the FE sector engaging staff and students in sustainability campaigns and initiatives. These practical experiences along with Kirsti’s research into barriers to personal and organisational sustainable behaviour have been brought together into this very practical workshop, learning from successes and mistakes from the FHE sector and beyond.
Kirsti’s dire student attempts at campaigning in heady days as SU Environment Officer at UWE will however be avoided.
