Profile Information

Welcome! FierySpirits is for activists and professionals who are building vibrant, resilient rural communities. Tell us a little about why you'd like to join?
I joined because my good friend Nick Wilding invited me and I trust him! Looking forward to finding out more about everyone else here and what they're up to - and possibilities for fruitful collaboration.
About Me (areas of expertise/interest I can share)
I'm a director of Footprint Consulting Ltd along with Dave Key. We help organisations make the planet a better place - otherwise known as crafting sustainability strategies and nurturing culture change.

My work isn't specifically focussed on rural communities, though much of it is related in some way - for example I'm currently working with the community on the Isle of Eigg, supporting them in the Big Green Challenge. In the previous phase of the Challenge I supported the bids from Tarbert (Loch Fyne) and Barra.

I'm on the grants panel of the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund, which provides grants to communities to reduce CO2 emissions. (I'm happy to chat if anyone's thinking of putting in an application.)

I'm currently supporting the development of Edinburgh University's sustainability and social responsibility agenda, and have previously helped the Scottish Parliament develop its Responsible Purchasing strategy. I also do work with the private sector.

Hello Osbert! It's great to be 'meeting' so many people from previous lives (I met you through Regenerate, you might have forgotten)

I'm glad to see you were involved in Eigg's successful bid to Big Green challenge. I'm co-chair of Light Foot Enterprises, running the Household energy Service, also a winner. Small world eh?

I'm now working for an employee owned consultancy, Resources for Change, www.r4c.org.uk. I'm working on a local food project, so contributing and listening to that discussion, mainly on the LEADER group. Another big project is engaging communities in adaptation to coastal change on the Hampshire coast.

Look forward to comparing notes again!

Osbert - noted your comment on my fiery spirit blog post on resilience (http://is.gd/1ridf ). Happy to stay in touch. What policy work are you thinking about where 'resilience buffer' might be a useful concept? Note that IFF is doing a great deal on mental health and 'psychological capacity' (which we prefer to resilience in this context) - see www.iffkitbag.com.

Hi Osbert

Welcome into FierySpirits.... acknowledge the 'later' entries above, but if you are able to expand a little now that would be helpful - a key part of the site is it's friendliness. Could I suggest you write a bit about your work helping islanders with green challenge? perhaps also with insitutional greening?

Best for now, enjoy looking around, and feedback helpful...
