How long have you been involved with BFoE?
Since October, so 7 months
What do you do here?
I started volunteering in the office doing whatever needed doing, then later I became the Communications Officer and was doing research on air pollution for the new campaign. Recently I’ve had to stop actually coming in to the office because of conflicting time commitments, but I’m still coming to meetings and contributing as much as I can
What do you like about working here?
There are lots of great things about volunteering at BFoE, but one of the best things is the dedicated, inspiring and genuinely nice people you work with
What have you learnt from volunteering with BFoE?
Well for one thing I’ve learnt more about environmental issues! I’ve found BFoE to be very welcoming to people of all levels of knowledge and experience
What do you think is the most important environmental issue and why?
Having worked on the research for the new campaign I am biased, but still, I would have to say air pollution. It is seriously damaging to our health; continuing to ignore it is not a realistic option when air pollution is causing 29,000 early deaths a year
What’s your best green tip/advice?
Walk more; it’s good for you, helps reduce air pollution, and it is free!
