Catia Squarcia

Catia works within the Sustainability sector with the aim to promote behavioral change, community development and transition towards a more just, equal and sustainable future.

She delivers training to adults for ACE – Action for Community and Environment, workshops for children for Ecoactive – Environmental Education and works as administrator and training coordinator for Talk Action- Training and Community Development. All of them based in London.

She believes we need to recover the social dimension of the local community in order to embrace the global challenges of this time. Next to educating to sustainable lifestyles, we need to shape people to the values of compassion, solidarity, justice, awareness and humanity. Responsible, active and aware citizens will be capable of sustainable solutions.

Catia achieved her postgraduate degree in Philosophy and Environmental Studies studying in different countries (Italy, Norway and Germany) with focus on Sustainability, Political Philosophy, Cultural/behavioral Change and Education. She completed several internships before defining her current roles and is now enrolled in the course “Sustainability Design”, run by GAIA Education http://www.gaiaeducation.org/index.php/en/

She also runs Creative Recycling workshops and loves rescuing rubbish to create craft items!

Steven Scorer

Bristol was more important than just the chance to get a degree for Steven, because it gave him the chance to get involved with environmental and sustainability issues in a forward-thinking part of the country. He has been involved in European Green Capital 2015 projects, as well as air quality and biodiversity campaigns, and with student matters in the University of Bristol itself.

Steven now wants to pass on some of what he’s learnt, to inspire and educate others in the same way, and to reinforce their opportunities in a future green economy.
