Bree is one of Julie’s Bicycle’s newest recruits – in July 2019, she joined the team as the Environmental Sustainability Coordinator, focusing on supporting the Arts Council England’s sustainability programme. Her work is integral to the management and delivery of the annual submissions from the National Portfolio Organisations for the Arts Council environmental report – utilising her working knowledge of data analysis and identifying best practices within the industry. She also supports and helps maintain the Accelerator Programme. Her climate science background has helped provide solutions and inspiration for the arts and cultural sector to take climate action.
During her Physical Geography Bachelors at King’s College London, her efforts focused on studying water resource management and the climate impacts of Small Island Developing States (SIDS), in recognition of her Caribbean heritage. After pursuing her interests which led her to further understand the challenges associated with water resources, she applied for the Raleigh International’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programme in Nepal, during which she discovered her passion for climate change mitigation.
Following on, Bree’s MSc in Climate Change: Environment, Science and Policy provided her with the skills and tools to further her knowledge and development in the discourse, allowing her the freedom to explore and solidify her commitment to support climate mitigation and championing environmental justice. Her specialties lie in: environmental dynamics in Anthropocene, environmental modelling and policymaking for environmental empowerment.
